Computing at Sellindge aims to develop computational thinking and creativity so that children are ready to participate effectively in the digital world. Computing involves how computer systems work, how to design and build programs, how to develop their ideas using technology and to create a range of content. All children at Sellindge are also taught to become safe and responsible users of technology both at school and home.
Computing is taught both as a discrete subject and also used to enrich and support teaching and learning within the rest of the curriculum. Children have regular access to the computer suite as well as having access to classroom computers. Each class also has an interactive whiteboard which both adults and children can use on a daily basis. In addition to computers, children also use tablets, digital cameras, programmable toys, CD players, Log-it boxes, digital microphones and scanners.
