Computing at Crockerne


At Crockerne our main priority is keeping children safe online through empowering children to understand how to manage and present themselves online. We believe the most powerful way children can keep themselves safe online is through clear and regular esafety teaching. This is further supported by our strong safeguarding culture throughout Crockerne.  


At Crockerne, we love computing! We want our children to build a healthy and balanced relationship with technology and see the learning potential that comes from their time spent online. We use Purple Mash to teach computing and embed the skills learned in computing lessons across the curriculum. Where possible, computing lessons and learning will be linked to the children's projects, however some skills will be taught discreetly. Computing is woven into many aspects of nearly every job in the real world, so at Crockerne we work hard to ensure children leave Crockerne with a firm understanding of how important digital literacy is in the real world with both their learning journey and their every day lives. We want our children to love computing and feel prepared for a life in a digital world!
