 At Brampton we recognise that Computing is constantly moving forward and we are highly motivated and committed to developing our expertise and resources to keep ahead in this fast moving world.  We aim to provide exciting Computing teaching to all pupils across all areas of the curriculum. 

 The aims of ICT lessons at Brampton Primary are:

  • To stimulate, develop and maintain pupils’ interest in and enjoyment of ICT and other areas of the curriculum;
  • To present ICT as a creative process in which children are encouraged to use their own initiative, imagination, reasoning and investigative skills;
  • To extend and enhance learning in all subject areas of the National Curriculum and beyond;
  • To provide the children with the knowledge of different applications of ICT.  This includes: word processing, data handling, control and simulations, multi-media and data logging devices;
  • To encourage children to understand the effects and limitations of ICT and to make decisions about its suitability for a particular task;
  • To appreciate the relevance of ICT in our society and that they see it as an essential tool for learning, communicating, finding information and for controlling and understanding their environment;
  • To work collaboratively and individually using ICT;
  • To receive equal opportunity to develop their ICT capability, with the use of ICT being planned for in line with its status as a core National Curriculum subject.

In the Foundation Stage we recognise the importance of teaching ICT skills at the earliest opportunity.   We relate the ICT aspects of the children’s work to the objectives set out in the Early Learning Goals (ELGs), which underpin the curriculum planning for the children aged three to five.  All pupils have the opportunity to use computers, netbooks, ipads and additional electronic resources to develop both keyboard and mouse skills and general computer proficiency by using a selection of appropriate quality software. In Key Stages 1 & 2 we are taking a skills based approach, focusing on the following strands:     Communication, Collaboration and Publishing; Control; Digital Imagery; Finding Things Out: Handling Data; Finding Things Out: Research; Modelling and Simulations; Multimedia and Music and Sound.

We are highly committed to the teaching of e-safety and each year, through-out school, pupils are taught how to keep themselves safe online.  If you would like any support in relation to how to approach e-sfety with your child please see your child's class teacher.  The following web-site also have an abundance of high-quality information and advice:
