Our Intent, Implementation and Impact for Computing

Intent

It is our intention to enable children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating and effective way. We want children to know more, remember more and understand more in computing so that they leave primary school computer literate. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this.

We have created a computing curriculum that develops pupil’s learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge of the world around them that ensures all pupils can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, information technology and digital literacy such as programming, data handling, word processing and e-safety.

Our curriculum prepares pupils to live safely in an increasingly digital British society where pupils can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems. In KS2 we are using the Google ‘Be Internet Legends’ e-safety programme to help deliver an exciting yet thorough programme to meet the requirements of the curriculum.

Implementation

  • Our computing curriculum is a two-year rolling programme which meets the national curriculum requirements and shows progression. Each area will be covered through regular lessons delivered by class teachers.
  • Children will have access to hardware (computers, tablets and programmable equipment) and the software required to help them develop knowledge and skills of digital systems and their applications.
  • Wider curriculum links and opportunities for the safe use of digital systems are considered when completing wider curriculum planning.
  • The importance of online safety is shown through displays within the learning environment and computer suite.
  • Parents are informed when issues relating to online safety arise and further information/support is provided if required.

Impact

When all the resources are available the children will be confident users of technology, able to use it to accomplish a wide variety of goals, both at home and in school. Children will have a secure and comprehensive knowledge of the implications of technology and digital systems. This is important in a society where technologies and trends are rapidly evolving. Children will be able to apply the British values of democracy, tolerance, mutual respect, rule of law and liberty when using digital systems.
