Computing Lead: Beccy Walker


At Luston and Shobdon we promote an environment where everyone feels welcome, included, represented and treated fairly. Everyone is encouraged and supported to take part in lessons. Computing is an essential life skill and our children know the increasing importance of Computing both in the classroom, and in their everyday life. The Computing curriculum is designed to equip children with the knowledge and the understanding that they will need to be active participants in a digital world. We teach children to use their computational thinking skills and design and create their own digital content.
