Our Teaching Approach

At Robert Arkenstall we’re extremely excited about the new computing curriculum and are relishing the new elements added to the old ICT curriculum.

In computing we teach a wide variety of skills, using engaging and modern software, engrossing hardware and, of course, fantastic teaching. Whether we are programming using Scratch, creating stop-motion animations using ZU3D or writing personal blogs for our individual Starz+ accounts, we always aim to make sure that lessons are informative, challenging and enjoyable.

At the heart of everything we do, and at all year groups, we ensure that e-safety is covered. We’re aware that we are increasingly moving into a digital age and that being able to act sensibly, safely and maturely online is of paramount importance.

Children at Robert Arkenstall are extremely positive about ICT and we’re always looking for new and interesting ways to teach the curriculum and make sure children are ready for their digital life in the future.
