Computing

We aim to provide high-quality computing education that equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity. Technology and computing are used in most areas of our and the children’s daily lives, so we aim to show the children how computing is used in the wider world at an age appropriate and meaningful level.

The children will be taught a range of skills how to create and use programmes, from a basic level using Bee-bots and Roamers in Foundation Stage progressing to using programming software such as ‘Scratch’ and then on to more advanced packages such as ‘Python’ in Year 6. Pupils will also learn how to organise digital information and to select and use a variety of software. Much of the content of our computing curriculum will be linked to the work that children are doing in subjects such as science and maths. In addition, they will be taught how to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly and how to report any concerns they may have.
