What our curriculum looks like:
Our computing curriculum ensures all children are able to understand and use technology. Our curriculum is aligned with the Teach Computing curriculum, which provides an in-depth coverage of the content from the National Curriculum. We support children in develop their computational thinking and problem-solving skills right from the start of Nursery.
Our curriculum is mapped out, so children understand computer science, know how to use information technology and become digitally literate. Children from Year 1 to Year 6, start the year by learning about Computer Systems and Networks, then Programming is taught in Spring and Summer, allowing children to learn the skills of how to programme and apply those skills practically.
We recognise the importance of E-Safety, therefore E-Safety is taught throughout the course of each year. Children are taught how to keep themselves safe and what to do when they feel unsafe.
