The objectives of this programme:

  • For children to learn why IT is important and to provide children with an excellent foundation that they can use throughout their lives
  • For children to recognise common uses of information technology in other cross curricular subjects and beyond school
  • For children to be safe online and in online communications
  • For children to use their creative thinking skills in online communications: blogging, email, social networks, vlogging
  • To encourage children to learn the benefits of the Internet and the functionalities of any computer or iPad

The use of iPads and laptops in the classroom has revolutionised the way children are taught and how they best respond to learning. Children are enthused and motivated by the use of iPads and laptops to aid their learning. Our ComputeCodeCommunicate© programme offers a range of modules which really develop their Computing knowledge, gives them the ability to use IT to support other curriculum subjects, and teaches them the importance of being safe online. As the world is becoming increasingly technology rich, the importance of quality Computing lessons is essential. Our Computing teachers show children how to create websites, how to do programming and coding, as well as teaching them the essential Computing terminology and basic Computer Science via simple, child-friendly methods.

Book PPA Cover / Enrichment Now

Friday, November 02, 2018

This week we found out that there is going to be additional money put into each and every school! This is money that hasn’t been accounted for and therefore extra. Many schools will now be looking at what and how they can spend this money but at the same time asking if what they want is affordable in the long term? Why put something in place that the children love for it to be taken away again when the funding runs out? Making it sustainable is a must and Primary PPA Cover are able to offer a variety of subjects in line with the national curriculum but with specialist staff. School teachers are already superheroes, let them have their time out of the classroom to plan not worrying about what they are coming back to.
