Mr. Balchin is our Computing Subject Lead
We equip children with the appropriate understanding and skills required to stay save online. We stimulate the children’s interest in and understanding of how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. Pupils gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers. There are opportunities for creative work in programming and digital media. 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.
As a school, we have chosen the Purple Mash Computing Scheme of Work from Reception to Year 6. The scheme of work supports our teachers in delivering fun and engaging lessons which help to raise standards and allow all pupils to achieve to their full potential. We are confident that the scheme of work meets the national vision for Computing and provides strong cross-curricular links.
We aim to provide our pupils with a broad, play-based experience of Computing in a range of contexts. We believe the following:
Key Stage 1 outcomes:
Key Stage 2 outcomes:
Our children are provide an exciting, rich, relevant and challenging Computing curriculum. They are responsible, respectful and competent users of data, information and communication technology. They are equipped with the capability to use technology throughout their lives and to reap the benefits of the online world, whilst being able to minimise risk to themselves or others. Our pupils understand the importance of governance and legislation regarding how information is used, stored, created, retrieved, shared and manipulated. They are critical thinkers, reflective learners and are able to utilise computational thinking beyond the Computing curriculum.
