The use of computers and computer systems is an integral part of the National Curriculum and knowing how they work is a key life skill. In an increasingly digital world there now exists a wealth of software, tools and technologies that can be used to communicate, collaborate, express ideas and create digital content.  At St Mary’s C E Primary School, Washington we recognise that pupils are entitled to a broad and balanced computing education with a structured, progressive, approach to the learning how computer systems work, the use of IT and the skills necessary to become digitally literate and participate fully in the modern world.


St Mary’s C E Primary School uses DB Primary and follows there whole-school scheme of work for Year 1 to Year 6 pupils.  DB Primary fully meets the objectives of the National Curriculum for Computing and allows for clear progression.  We also use Google Classroom, Microsoft Office and a number of learning apps to support remote learning at home (including homework) and to enhance pupil engagement in learning to read, spell and recall multiplication facts.  IT and computing is also used to support learning in other subjects with opportunities to enrich and deepen learning using cross-curricular approaches across the Curriculum.

Our school has a wealth of up to date hardware, including interactive whiteboards in each classroom, classroom PCs, laptops for each child and a suite of IPads.  We are also able to loan hardware to those pupils who may not have access to sufficient equipment at home.
