Our intent, as a school community, is to equip our children with the knowledge, skills and understanding of computing to successfully navigate through an ever-changing digital world.
It is our intention, via Crucial Knowledge, to enable children to find, explore, analyse and present information. We also have an emphasis on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use the internet in an effective and safe way, understanding the tremendous importance of internet safety.
Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this through these four strands: Computer Safety, Computer Programs, Computer Competency and Computer Resilience.


Our computing curriculum is designed to allow children to learn about technology and its uses, develop computing skills, and apply what they have learnt in all areas of the curriculum and daily life. We will equip our pupils with the crucial knowledge needed to be successful, so they can apply this knowledge and develop the skills and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives.
The computing curriculum is comprised of four strands which weave throughout the year groups: Computer Safety, Computer Programs, Computer Competency and Computer Resilience. These strands come together and interlink to teach children: how to stay safe using technology; how to design, build and analyse programs; how to use a computer and technology with ease and confidence; and how to find and manage digital information securely. Children will use these skills to become responsible, competent, resilient, confident and creative participants of an increasingly digital world and have a solid foundation on which to build in the next phase of their education.
