At Ark Bentworth, we use Purplemash as the basis of our weekly computing lessons. The programme teaches pupils about computer science, digital literacy, information technology and online safety:
- Computer science supports pupils in understanding how computers work through teaching them about programming.
- Digital literacy teaches pupils about the uses of technology for communication and collaboration.
- Information technology is about how technology can be used to search for, collect and present information.
- Online safety ensures that pupils feel confident when using the internet and explains what to do if they come across something which is inappropriate or makes them feel uncomfortable
