Computing at Great Linford Primary School
Great Linford Primary School believes that learning life-long computing skills is fundamental to a child's development. As children move on to secondary school and into the world of work, their ability to use computers will be an important part of their lives. At Great Linford Primary School we not only teach the children how to use computers, but how to create presentations, videos, websites, code games and programs; and to how to do it all while keeping safe online.
We believe that being safe is a fundamental part of having fun. Our approach to Online Safety is no different. All children have online safety lessons each term and we take part in the safer internet day in February each year.
