Our computing curriculum aims to enable the children to learn about and understand the technological world that they live in, in order to reach their potential in an ever changing world. Through our specific half termly internet safety lessons, as well as the broader computing curriculum, we aim to empower children with a set of values in order to enable them to live effectively and safely within the ever-changing world they find themselves in. The structure and progression within the computing curriculum allows children to build their knowledge, skills, confidence and independence within a curriculum area that is key to their future. The curriculum covers a wide and varied range of computing elements, allowing children to develop their own unique potential as well as also giving them an insight in to computing areas in which they have had limited experience. These areas provide children with rich and vibrant opportunities and link to real-life experiences with a curriculum that is ambitious and progressive for all children and essential in their ability to be a valued, contributing member of society.
Our long term computing plan covers the national curriculum objectives and ensures that each year group builds on the previous experience of their learners so there is clear progression. Our children are immersed in a range of communication tools and clear progression in the skills needed to use within these core programs.
