Computing

Our computing curriculum focuses on the three areas of computer knowledge required to be successful at primary school level – computer science, digital literacy and information technology. The information below outlines how we intend to deliver the curriculum, how this will be taught and the expected outcomes following our high expectations of children’s developing knowledge.

INTENT

  1. To build on this knowledge and understanding so that pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
  2. To ensure that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
  3. To ensure that pupils can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.
  4. To ensure that pupils can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.
  5. To enable pupils to evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
  6. To ensure that pupils are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
