Computing

ICT and Computing at Oakington Manor is outstanding. The state of the art Multimedia and Recording Studio enables pupils to participate in both ICT and Computing activities.

Our school has a long history of innovative use of new technologies to enrich the curriculum. Children’s learning is sustained and they are able to transfer their knowledge across different situations and think more critically to become more independent learners. Learning of the foundation subjects is cross-curricular, relevant and engaging to motivate and inspire both learners and staff. This is achieved through creating lively and engaging experiences that have been developed in tandem with the use of the IPC (International Primary Curriculum)

Our award-winning team is recognised locally, nationally and internationally for their forward-thinking and innovative ways of delivering ICT and Computing for children from EYFS right up to Year 6. Staff and adults are also catered for to ensure that they too are up-to-date with the technologies being deployed around the school. More recently the school received accreditation as a Specialist Centre for Computing, delivering courses for Brent Schools and beyond through the Brent Schools Partnership (BSP).

 

Pupils at Oakington Manor are encouraged to develop their ICT and Computing skills through age appropriate activities which include using:

  • iPads, tablets, laptops and desktops for research, creative writing (including book publishing)and game creation;

  • Cameras and camcorders for creative filmmaking and learning the basics of photography;

  • Beebots, Remote control toys, Ozobots, Makey Makeys, Lego Wedo and Nao Robots to create, challenge, problem solve, low to high level coding and robotics activities. This is further encouraged through opportunities for pupils to become a ‘Coding Champion’, a ‘Media Team member’ or a Digital Leader in our weekly run ICT and Coding Club.

  • Videos, age appropriate stories and activities to teach children about the importance of keeping safe online. 

  • Pupils and Staff are e-confident!
