At West Cliff Primary School, we believe that Computing is an essential part of the national curriculum. Click here to view our Computing policy.
At West Cliff we inspire and engage our learners to be confident, skilful and autonomous citizens in the digital world, untethered from the classroom.
We have 1:1 iPads for all children in Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2, as well as access to iPads for our pupils in the Early Years. We use these, smartboards and Apple TVs to enhance learning across all subjects.
- The National Curriculum provides a structure and skill development for the Computing curriculum being taught. At West Cliff, we use the Apple 'Everyone can...' resources to deliver the majority of our computing curriculum. These are high quality teaching and learning materials which enable progression for all pupils through the use of a wide range of apps.
