Our computing curriculum equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. We have invested in a fantastic scheme of work called ‘Kapow’ which enables our teachers to deliver high-quality computing lessons, providing excellent subject knowledge to ensure our pupils are given exceptional learning experiences in this subject. Kapow scheme of work fulfils the statutory requirements outlined in the National Curriculum and categorises computing content into three strands - Digital Literacy, Computer Science and Information Technology - where progression of knowledge and skills is clear and builds incrementally year-on-year. Our pupils are exposed to a range of exciting learning opportunities, including programming, animation and researching.
It is our responsibility to ensure that children understand the cruciality of staying safe when using technology and the internet. We have therefore ensured that e-safety lessons are taught on a termly basis to emphasise the importance of online safety, and regularly reinforce and recap the key learning points.
Our aim is to provide our pupils with a platform to express themselves and develop ideas at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
