Computing Intent at Allenton

At Allenton, pupils will be digitally engaged, empowered, supported and receive quality education through the use of technology which will enable them to work independently, creatively and safely, preparing them for jobs of the future.


Structure of Computing Lessons

Each half term every class will focus on a digital element of learning:  Photography, Music (sounds), Drawing (images), Film (video & film), Presenting and Coding (see individual year group Computing Progressions below).  The first lesson of each half term has an eSafety focus but themes from eSafety are intertwined into much of the children’s discussions and learning daily at Allenton especially in lessons such as PSHE.

What does digital technology look like at Allenton?

At Allenton we are a 1:1 iPad school. What this means for pupils is that they all

have their own iPad to use on a daily basis to enhance and support their

learning in all areas of the curriculum.  This iPad gets taken with them on

their school journey. Teachers are able to provide enhancements and

transformations as a result of having 1:1 ipads readily available, allowing

pupils at Allenton to gain experiences that they wouldn’t necessarily have

been able to without technology in the classroom. 


Showbie is an app that is integral to the day to day practice of both teachers and pupils.  It allows teachers to set assignments and tasks but also allows children to submit work digitally which can then be marked and assessed by the teacher.  Showbie supports traditional practice of working in exercise books and both work side by side to allow children to create comprehensive records of their learning and progress in all subjects.

We love using our iPads!
