Through our Computing curriculum and enrichment provision, we aim to nurture the following essential characteristics of a computing expert:

 

  • shows competence in coding for a variety of practical and inventive purposes, including the application of ideas.
  • connect with others safely and respectfully, understanding the need to act within the law and with moral and ethical integrity.
  • communicate ideas well by using applications and devices throughout the curriculum.

 

From Foundation Stage to Year 6, we use and follow the Purple Mash Computing scheme of work. All children have individual logins to this online resource and cover a range of computing units.

 

When assessing children's learning, we use the Chris Quigley Milestones to judge their progress and next steps in learning.

 

Children who are confident and able in their computing abilities have the opportunity to become "Computing Support" in our class. These children are able to develop their explanation and problem solving skills by supporting their peers.

The 2014 National Curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
