Computing

The school is equipped with wireless hubs in each room and trolleys of laptops which the children use at their desks. At Kingston laptops can also be connected directly to the network.

We have digital cameras, microphones, recorders and a wide range of exciting software. Each classroom also has a smartboard and projector for use in most lessons. Our children use ICT equipment in many subjects. In Computing lessons, they learn about e-safety, coding, email and communications, control technology, data handling, word processing, touchtyping, publishing, computer aided design, research and investigation, and much more.

Our Computing Club helps to stretch and enthuse children who are keen to extend their skills.

E-Safety

In today’s world, it is more important than ever that children know how to keep themselves safe. We make e-safety a high priority and children are taught the basics of online safety in every year group and in regular special assemblies.

However, there is only so much schools can do. It is incredibly important that parents take the time to talk to their children and set rules within their homes. We strongly suggest that you put a filter in place at home to prevent your children accessing adult sites, and that you monitor your child’s computer access. Talk to your child today!
