The Computing Programme of Study has been developed to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum.
- Ensure Computing is incorporated into all areas of the National Curriculum, in a variety of contexts.
- All pupils are extended in each area of the Computing Curriculum so that they reach their full potential.
- Pupils appreciate the relevance of Computing in our society, and that they see ICT as an essential tool for learning, for communication, for finding information and for controlling and understanding their environment. Pupils will be given opportunity to describe, illustrate, interpret, predict and explain using technological language and conventions.
- Children are encouraged to use their own initiative, imagination, reasoning and investigative skills to solve problems using ICT.
- Pupils learn to work individually and collaboratively.
- Children will have discrete programming lessons during which they will write code for a purpose.
- Pupils have a heightened awareness of Computing through its use in all areas and by all members of the school.
- Every child receives equal opportunity to develop their Computing capability (using tools and information sources effectively, developing practical applicable skills).
- Teaching is enhanced through the effective implementation and use of ICT equipment.
- Pupils derive enjoyment, confidence and a sense of achievement from their use of ICT.
