Alcester Street


Yew Tree Community School



At Yew Tree, we believe that the development of computing skills is vital to ensure that children are equipped for the next stage of their education and beyond. All children are taught computing by subject specialist teacher, Mr Mistry.  


As a school, we follow the Purple Mash computing scheme of work. This ensures that the children meet the aims of the National Curriculum 2014 and provides the children with the opportunity to work using a variety of different software and hardware developing their coding skills. 


Alongside the weekly computing lesson, we support the children's digital literacy through the use of computers and Ipads within lessons to supplement the learning. We use a variety of apps aimed at enhancing the foundation curriculum as well as developing the children's competency in computing skills through the use of powerpoints, word processing and excel.
