Laleham Lea

A Catholic Independent Primary School for boys and girls aged 3 to 11

29 Peaks Hill, Purley, Surrey, CR8 3JJ


Computing forms a large part of the curriculum at Laleham Lea and Pupils enjoy specialist Computing lessons each week from Year 1 through to Year 6 in our Computer Suite.

Our younger Pupils start by learning simple computing skills including mouse and keyboard operation before progressing to learn the basics of spreadsheets, presentation programmes and other practical applications for use in everyday life.

By the end of Year 6 Pupils are confident building their own web pages and using coding programmes including Scratch and Python.

Our Computing Programme also focuses on cross-curricular integration between Computing and other academic subjects. Year 4 recently created their own individual Web Pages on The Greeks to support their History topic.

Laleham Lea actively supports the promotion of Internet Safety at school and at home and all children in Years 3-6 will have a dedicated e-safety computing lesson each year in support of Safer Internet Day.

Computer Club takes place after school and is available to pupils in Years 3-6 on a Termly rota.

From Year 1 pupils are given access to Mathlectics, an online Maths programme designed to support the National Curriculum and help children develop key Maths’ skills. Pupils are invited to attend Mathletics Club before school on Wednesday and Thursday and can also log in from home.
