From September 2014 the subject ICT changed to Computing across the country. Children learn basic computer science and programming alongside IT skills and how to be safe and literate in an ever changing technological world.
At Mareham Le Fen CE Primary School we value the contribution that technology can make for the benefit of all our pupils. We provide an ICT rich environment from Reception to Year 6 including use of laptops, programmable toys, IPad's, interactive whiteboards and our own filming equipment.

Children at Mareham use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have regular 'e-safety' activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online. Children are taught about e-safety as part of our computing curriculum.
At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.
