• We recognise that our children will be working as adults in a world where computers continue to play an increasingly integral part in day-to-day life and as such this is reflected in our computing curriculum.

    At the core of the computing curriculum is the knowledge of the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming and using information technology to create programs and systems. Our computing curriculum also ensures that all children become digitally literate – able to use, express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology as active participants in a digital world.

    Underpinning all their learning across the computing curriculum is the developing knowledge of how to keep themselves and others safe online and how they can become responsible users of digital technology. This is taught throughout the curriculum across each computing unit, and is also a key focus of learning in every year group as part of the national Safer Internet Week initiative.

    The school has a range of technology, such as a computer suite, laptops and tablets that are used to support teaching and learning in all areas of the curriculum. The use of this technology is embedded across the curriculum to support learning and understanding, including recording and presenting data; digital photography and research and design.
