Gaining a strong grounding of computer science and coding
Our bespoke curriculum enhances the English National Curriculum, prepping students with a range of necessary digital skills of the modern world. Office365, SharePoint, Teams and OneNote are used extensively in all subjects across the whole of KS2 onwards.
In Computing and project-based learning, students have access to high-quality convertible laptop-to-tablets with styluses to effectively combine both traditional and digital methods of reading, writing and learning, whilst effectively accessing the latest software programmes.
Our state-of-the-art X Lab, LaunchPad and 21st Century publishing and media studio provide students with the provision they need to create the future and develop their collaborative and innovative character traits needed in the future.
In Lower KS2, students gain a strong grounding of computer science and coding, developing a broader understanding & knowledge of the algorithmic process and computational thinking. They are introduced to SMART and block-based coding languages. They learn early word-processing and publishing skills, including Teams & OneNote, not only for collaboration and publishing but also about app and website prototyping.
In our XTeam Jr, students take physical computing to a whole new level as they learn to apply STEAM & inventing thought processes. They invent and code their own X – physical games, toys, quizzes & prototypes, solving problems, creating solutions.
In Upper KS2, students both broaden and deepen their understanding of computer science, learning a variety of programming languages such as HTML, CSS and Python to name a few. They code Raspberry Pi’s to and electrical components to produce real-world outcomes such as satellites, rovers, learning about Artificial Intelligence, robotics and SMART technologies along the way. Squads hard-code live websites to publish, celebrate, share and enhance both their class and personal learning, whilst others learn about design thinking processes to create solutions to unknown problems.
Students are introduced to a broader range of Office365 features (including Spreadsheets and Forms). They develop leadership skills such as handling the technical lighting and sound for the musical, teaching and supporting the XTeam Jr and even publishing their own learning series.
In the XTeam Sr, students expand on project-based learning, inventing and innovating with physical computing (codable electronics & Raspberry Pi) to create their X. They learn to use design thinking to produce answers to questions not yet asked! Creating future!
By the end of KS2, students are securely grounded in a variety of problem-solving, inventing and thinking processes, showcasing grit, resilience and resourcefulness. They have a strong computer science foundation and a firm grounding in the beginnings of Industry 4.0 standards and personal character strengths needed to flourish.
Challenges & Competitions
Throughout the school, Regent students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of coding competitions, hackathons, STEAMathalons and others that arise. Regent created a SMART Shoe for DEWA Robotics Competition, scored 1st place for Design an App Competition, Grittiest Award for #ParOne STEAMathalon, scored 1st place in 5 Categories in Unified Robotics & more.
Regent is an outstanding school
and provides an outstanding quality of education for pupils from three to 11 years
Very strong Curriculum with rich learning opportunities
that has an impact on the child's progress.
We learn to sing and to use our voices, to create and compose music.
We even have the opportunity to learn how to play different musical instruments. Our music teachers are very talented. They even taught some of us how to floss.
With an amazing senior leadership team and experienced educators,
a Regent education is interactive and collaborative – they truly make primary school a memorable experience.
My school feels like home.
I love coming to school every day.
Possibilities seem infinite at Regent.
There are no limits in my child’s imagination about what he can do. Children are encouraged to take chances, try anything and not be afraid.
The strong sense of community makes Regent more than just a great place for study,
it’s a great place to socialise and make new friends.
Regent has given my daughter a new start.
This school has encouraged her to gain confidence and to express herself despite mistakes. The teachers are always available to help and laugh with her.
