Children will understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.
Children will have the opportunity to evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
Pupils will be equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
We aim to ensure that children are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
Children will become independent and skilful users of digital technology and will be outward looking and forward thinking in this technological age.
To equip all learners with the experiences and skills of computing that they will use in a rapidly changing technological world and to engage children through enriched multi-media learning experiences.
We aim to ensure that teachers develop confidence and competence to use digital technology in the effective teaching of their subject.
Children will become digitally literate. They will be able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology, at a level suitable for future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
Schemes of Work
We follow the DfE approved Teach Computing curriculum from the National Centre for Computing Education. The Teach Computing curriculum is structured into units for each year group (KS1 - Years 1 and 2; KS2 - Years 3-6). The units can generally be taught in any order, with the exception of programming, where concepts and skills rely on prior knowledge and experiences. Lessons within each unit are taught in numerical order.
Help for Parents
Recommended Computing Websites
We use scratch throughout school to help us learn how to code. This easy-to-use programming language allowed children to build almost anything they can dream.
