At Millfield, we try to integrate the use of computers and other digital technology into as many areas of the curriculum that we can.   We were one of the first primary schools in the area to adopt interactive whiteboards and networked PCs and we intend to provide your children with the skills they need for the digital age.


We have upgraded our computing provision with laptops or Chromebooks for all classes, access to tablet computers and have a managed wireless network to enable the children and staff to enhance their learning and teaching. 


Within classes, we have a number of children who take on the role of 'Digital Leaders' and we are also proud to run a popular weekly after-school Code Club.


Computing curriculum 

There are four main areas of study in the curriculum:

E-Safety                     - using web-enabled technology safely and where to seek support

Computer Science     - algorithms, debugging, programming etc.

Use of Technology     - how we can use digital technology, including web search technology

Digital Literacy           - skills for using computer software (Microsoft Word, PowerPoint etc.)



Each class has dedicated computing sessions where specific computer skills will be delivered.  All other areas of the curriculum use digital technology where appropriate to enhance the children’s learning.



Children complete at least two computing projects per year which are assessed against a pre-agreed set of success criteria.  This has an accepted level (expected) and a higher level (exceeding).


E-Safety is a very high priority for us and all children are taught how to stay safe.  Specific E-safety lessons take place throughout the year for both children and parents and online safety is  included as a topic during class and whole-school assemblies.  Further information and advice about e-safety can be found on our dedicated webpage here.
