Computing

"The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work 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." (Computing in the National Curriculum: A Guide for Primary Teachers, 2013, ISBN: 978-1-78339-143-1)

Our Medium Term Plans show what is taught in each year group and how learning progresses. This allows us to follow the National Currciulum and ensure the children experience broad and balanced learning in Computer Science, Information Technology, Digital Literacy and Online Safety.
