“What a computer is to me is the most remarkable tool that we have ever come up with. It's the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.”
(Steve Jobs)

We see the computing curriulum as a fundamental aspect of our children's education. The national curriculum for computing has four main 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.
We are equipped to provide the children with the access they require to technologies to develop their digital literacy. Throughout school, children are able to access iPads and, as they move into upper Key Stage 2, each Year 5 and Year 6 has their own laptop and Office 365 account. Each classroom has the latest screen technology, and subscriptions to online learning apps such as Times Tables Rock Stars allow pupils to access digital learning from school or home.

Discrete computing lessons are delivered in partnership with Junior Jam, enabling pupils to create programs, films, music and a range of other content, whilst encouraging them to express themselves and develop their own ideas using the latest apps. Pupils are also introduced to the wide range of opportunities technology can present in other aspects of the curriculum. 
Progression overview

Junior Jam support our teaching of computing. Junior Jam teachers visit school to deliver a term of computing lessons. For the subsequent terms, teachers use the ICT progression document and teach fundamental ICT skills trough out the wider curriculum.
