Computing at St Joseph's teaches the children to program, develop their computational thinking and to find out more about computer networks. They also develop their communication, creative and collaborative skills.
We are fortunate to have 30 laptops, which all classes have access to, to develop their computing skills. The school also has iPads for the children's use.
The children have access to programmable toys, such as Bee Bot , to develop their early programming skills.
The laptops and iPads are used across the curriculum to develop the children's research skills and to provide access to a wealth of curriculum resources.

We have Digital Leaders throughout the school. They advise the children about staying safe when using technology both at home and school.
KS2 children enjoy learning to code during our weekly lunchtime coding club. The digital leaders help to support the children during the club.
The children use a variety of apps such as Scratch Junior, BeeBot and Tynker to help develop their coding skills and to create online games.
