Computing at Padiham Primary School


ICT (Information and communication technology) is vastly becoming an integral part of our lives. Here at Padiham Primary school we recognise the importance of computing and ensure it is embedded right across our new broad and balanced curriculum. 


We provide an ICT - rich environment which means children have the essential skills and knowledge to become enabling learners in our rapidly changing digital world. 



When creating our new curriculum, we followed the National Curriculum computing programme of study, to ensure pupils are equipped with computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.
