We intend to provide a fulfilling and innovative computing curriculum that inspires children to stretch their abilities. We want to spark curiosity and encourage our children to embark on new challenges, working both independently and collaborating with others. Our intention is that computing also supports creativity and cross curricular learning to engage children and enrich their experiences in school.
Children will learn how to design and write programs, create a range of content using digital software and devices, create 3D models, critically evaluate the vast flow of information provided by the internet and learn how to be responsible digital citizens.
Our Computing curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in digital literacy, computer science, information technology and online safety to ensure that children become competent in safely using, as well as understanding, technology. Children are equipped to use computer science knowledge and understanding to create programs, systems and a range of content and are helped to become responsible, competent, confident, and creative users of information and communication technology.
At all stages, online safety is embedded into the learning and emphasised through discreet teaching linked to PSHE objectives.
