“PUPILS 52 boys and girls, aged 4-11 A teeny-tiny school with just over 50 pupils in three classes – but golly, it’s a good one. A mother emails: ‘When I looked around Llangrove, the children were coming in from break and one handed me a flower on her way past, which was pretty compelling.’ Llangrove is a largeish village (one pub, one school), 15 minutes north of Monmouth in a glorious valley. Deputy head Sarah Dean is, says a mother, ‘lovely and very down to earth’, and there are two ‘fantastic’ male teachers. There’s great focus on good manners (pupil behaviour was rated Outstanding by Ofsted), and strong links with the church and the local community. We’re impressed with the IT provision – lots of laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards in each classroom. Pupils praise the after-school sports clubs, swimming lessons in Monmouth in the summer, theatre trips to Hereford and an annual whole-school expedition – one year they went to Barry Island, which must have been a whole lot of fun.”

Computing Curriculum

Computing at Lord Scudamore Academy is taught in a creative and inspiring curriculum in line with the new National Curriculum.

Computing skills are taught to the children through Computing lessons using our banks of laptops, iPads, Promethean Interactive Whiteboards or Active Panels and other digital devices. Such technology is enabling our pupils to participate in an exciting, contemporary Computing curriculum, as well as allowing teachers to embed the use of technology as a learning tool across the curriculum.

The curriculum is broken down into 3 areas:
• Computer Science (Computing, algorithms and programming) – Children learn how digital systems work and use this to create programs
• Information Technology (digital literacy and data handling)- – children are able to use, express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology
• E-Safety – Children use technology safely and keep themselves safe online (Take a look at how to keep safe online (link here to the Esafety section of our website)

Following the disapplication of the QCA ICT Curriculum, our school has developed it’s own curriculum. This has been further developed to reflect the New computing Curriculum 2014. Our Computing Skills Ladder is based on the CAS Computing in Schools documentation and Herefordshire Computing Progression.
Where possible we find creative cross-curricular links and embed the Computing skills ladder within our main topics.
