Westfield is fortunate in having two well-equipped computer suites as well as the computers in the library and 2 class sets of iPads which can be used in classrooms. Every classroom has an interactive whiteboard for use during lessons and all staff use this technology to engage learning. There are computers available for use in most classrooms and all children also have access to computers during lessons, clubs and before and after school to do homework. The hall is equipped with a digital projector, PC, electronic screen and a sound system which provides an excellent resource. Pupils have discrete computing lessons. Pupils are taught to use technology safely, effectively and responsibly.
The computing curriculum prepares pupils to participate in a world immersed in digital technologies. From Reception to Upper Key Stage 2 children use a wide range of ICT tools to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information in a responsible and creative way. As an important part of the curriculum this curriculum children learn about ‘e-safety’. We believe that all children should be given opportunities to ensure they are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
