Being a Digital Engineer

Lead Digital Engineer:

Miss Roberts

At Stanbridge we aim to provide high-quality, engaging, computing experiences that will equip young people to become independent, skilled computational thinkers. 

How do we teach Computing and why has this approach been chosen?

At Stanbridge Year 2-6 do discrete, computing lessons in our fully-equipped computer suite or use a class set of I-Pads. In EYFS and Year 1, adults support children to be digital engineers during continuous provision using the resources in the classroom. This means all children can explore up to date software and hardware for engaging and interactive learning.


Our lessons compliment the enquiries that the children are being taught perfectly to ensure the learning is relevant, interesting and supportive of the other states of being. Each year group learns about computing (Autumn term), programing and coding (Spring term) and digital research (Summer term) so skills and knowledge are consolidated and extended as the children progress through the school. 


Why is it right for children at Stanbridge?

Stanbridge pupils will leave being digitally literate. This means being able to use, develop ideas and express themselves safely and respectfully through information and communication technology. Our pupils will be equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Through engaging exploration and investigation activities, creative and problem solving skills will be developed so pupils are able to adapt and develop a lifelong fascination with our ever-changing technological world.



  • We have a new computing scheme that links with the enquiries taught to ensure learning is relevant and shows children how technology can support all other states of being.



  • EYFS and KS1 will be updating the computing equipment available for the children to explore and become familiar with so even our youngest learners will be confident digital engineers.


Stanbridge pupils will all learn to be safe and respectful users of computing technology. Please see our dedicated internet safety webpages with links, resources and advice to support our young people at school and at home.
