Our computing curriculum aims to provide children with a wide variety of experiences and opportunities in computing to educate and inspire them about the endless possibilities computers provide. By exploring the areas of Digital Literacy, Computer Science and Information technology, children will be exposed to a broad range of skills and knowledge ranging from storing and organising data to programming and design. Within each of these areas, an ongoing discussion and exploration of issues around e-safety take place to ensure that all of our children are equipped to deal with challenges that using computers can cause.
Our curriculum is built around the National Curriculum and follows the scheme set out by Teach Computing. Each year group studies two units of work in the three key areas allowing them to build on previous learning and maintain and develop their skills throughout their school career. These skills are related back to ‘real life’ to allow children to put their learning into context. Quality teaching, practical exploration and investigation helps to ensure that children are fully engaged in their work and are able to demonstrate the skills and knowledge they have gained in lessons and across topics and year groups.
