A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.
The core of computing is 'Computer Science', in which pupils are taught the principples of information and computation, how digital systems wor, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures 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.
We teach our Computing Curriculum using Purple Mash. These lessons take place weekly in Key Stage One.
Our Computing Curriculum ensures that we have regular activites based around Internet Safety, reminding us how we are responsible to keep ourselves safe. Below you can find links to online Internet Safety resources. Click on them to find out more.
