Through our computing curriculum we aim to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they develop lifelong skills and knowledge.
We believe that computing encourages our pupils to communicate, be creative and explore. Computing and the skills involved are of vital importance in daily life and our curriculum aims to provide children with the necessary skills to engage and thrive in an ever-growing technological society.
Aims and Intent
We aim for the computing curriculum to inspire and enthuse children and for children to be explorative and develop skills of independence as they move through the school. Children will do this while using vital skills that will enable them to thrive in modern society.
Links will be made with other curriculum subjects and children will be confident in making these links themselves.
E-safety is at the heart of the computing curriculum and will be embedded in all lessons as it is essential that children access all areas of technology safely and develop the ability to offer advice to keep others safe online.
Specific E-safety lesson are taught at the beginning of each term. We use resources from:
– Purple Mash
