Computing at Orchard Academy
Computing lessons at Orchard are taught weekly to all classes. We have a good supply of laptops and i-pads so that children are able to work on thieir own device in their lessons. We follow the Rising Stars 'Switched on Computing' scheme.
We aim to develop children’s ability to creatively communicate and present their ideas; learn to programme for different purposes and adapt to emerging technologies. E-safety is woven through our curriculum ensuring children develop responsible attitudes to digital life, preparing them for the 21st Century.
