Computing at SJF
At St John Fisher pupils will be taught Digital Literacy, Information Technology and Computer Science to enable them to become responsible, competent, confident and creative users of technology in the now global digital world. We use specialist IT support to ensure the delivery of Computer Science is current and use up to date and engaging hardware and software.
Due to the current COVID 19 restrictions we have adapted the long term plan for Computing. If you would like any further information please contact the school office.
Our Digital Leaders
This year we are having to use our Digital Leaders in a different way. Instead of working with all year groups, the Digital Leaders are working within their own year group bubble. As well as helping students and staff with looking after the hardware and accessories, they continue to be great advocates for Online Safety, and share their knowledge and skills with their classmates.
