Computing

Our Vision

At South Petherwin, we see computing as an integral part of the curriculum. This is because we passionately believe in 'learning today to change tomorrow' and want to fully prepare our children for a world which will no doubt look very different to the world of today. We want our children to develop an understanding of how computer systems work, become competent users of computing technology and be resilient when things don't work. Our aim is to encourage healthy habits regarding the use of computing technology to ensure every child is safe online.

 

There has been a significant investment in computing at South Petherwin School.  
In the last year we have:
  1. Installed a new TV screen in the hall which is used for assembly, PE lessons, PTA events and much more.
  2. Bought new Chromebooks
  3. Upgraded our wifi
Scratch Projects
 
Our Computing Club after school on a Monday is hugely successful and children can come along and learn new skills. We have keen programmers, using Scratch, who are able to teach others on how to solve programming problems. Scratch is used widely in our school as it provides the building blocks of learning to programme and create algorithms to create animations and simple games.
Digital Leaders
 
Our school is unique in having 'digital leaders'.  These children have been able to offer support for teachers and children in the school in the use of the new Chrome Books.
