Computing

Computing is a big focus at Southfields, as we explore the support IT offers to ensure pupils are prepared for the future.  Children must now be taught a whole range of skills from programming to debugging.  Please have a look over the information on this page which will help you to understand the content and progression of IT across the school. 

At Southfields we will be continuing to use the amazing IT provision we have, such as the computing suite, green screen and multimedia suite, iPads, Lego Robotics, Interactive Whiteboards and BeeBots, as well as to enhance our teaching further by following The Rising Stars 'Switched On Computing' Scheme of Work, from Year 1 up to Year 6. 

The teaching of E-Safety is extremely important to us at Southfields as we help our pupils to become safe and responsible Digital Citizens in this new and quickly-evolving digital world.  Feel free to have a look at the attachment below which gives you an insight into the ways in which we teach E-Safety to our pupils.

We are very proud to have some extremely talented pupils at Southfields - we have our very own Digital Leaders. These children have been recruited from across the school and help to peer teach in everything from E-Safety (as part of our E-Cadets scheme) to programming.
