Computing

Computing Intent
To know and be able to apply the fundamental principles of computer science, information technology and digital literacy.

We want to model and educate our children on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely.

To lay the foundations to enable children to effectively and safely explore and demonstrate their learning within the whole curriculum through creative uses of technology.

 

Implementation of Computing

Computing is taught through discrete lessons three half terms a year. Our lessons use the ‘teach computing’ resources and covers all aspects of the National Curriculum. This scheme ensure progression through to Key Stage Two at our Junior school.

In addition to these discrete lessons, we ensure, where appropriate, that key skills are embedded throughout the curriculum through regularly cross curricular activities.

E-Safety and Digital Citizenship

Through the use of Natterhub (KS1), Safer Internet and NSPCC resources every half term, we aim to give children the necessary skills to keep them safe online.

 

 

Impact of Computing

The implementation of our curriculum ensures that children leave our school being competent and safe users of technology with an understanding of how it works. They will have developed skills to express themselves and be equipped to apply their skills in computing to different challenges going forward.

Progress in Computing is demonstrated through regular reviewing of:

  • Children’s work (books, One Drive, cross curricular links) and Natterhub evidence
  • Gathering pupil voice
  • Observing how children perform in lessons
  • Pre and post topic assessments
