At Arlecdon Primary School we aim to support our pupils to develop their skills in order to use technology in their everyday life. We give all our children opportunity to investigate a wide range of technological equipment and develop their problem-solving skills in order to be confident enough to use these independently and safely.

The technology we see and use around us such as laptops, phones, household appliances, televisions, games consoles and even traffic lights all rely on algorithms (instructions) to work effectively, therefore we give children change to discover how algorithms are used to make technology do a specific task.

Our Computing curriculum ensures that pupils have the freedom to create using technology through animation, art, broadcasting, data handling, design, film-making, music, presentations, publishing and research.
