Computing Statement of Intent

 

In an ever-changing world, it is very apparent that technology is changing the lives of everyone in both their work and their leisure.  Our aim is to provide our pupils with a computing curriculum that supports the pivotal role technology will play in their lives from the start. We wish to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely.  We aim to build the foundations of skills through EYFS to the end of Key Stage 1 in preparation for Key Stage 2 and beyond, in their future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

Our computing curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in digital literacy, computer science, information technology and online safety. We encourage staff to try to embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible. It is our wish that by the end of Key Stage 1 the children will have the motivation, independence and confidence to choose the best tools to fulfil a given task or challenge.
