Computing

Computing Curriculum

Our Subject Lead for Computing: Mrs T Taylor

Curriculum Statement

At Victoria Road Primary School, we aim to deliver a computing curriculum that enables children to be equipped with the skills necessary to confidently work within our increasing digital world.

Intent

In line with the 2014 National Curriculum for Computing, our aim is to provide a high-quality computing education which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. The curriculum will teach children key knowledge about how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. Learners will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers.
By the time they leave Victoria Road, children will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work), information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information) and digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully). The objectives within each strand support the development of learning across the key stages, ensuring a solid grounding for future learning and beyond.

Implementation

We use the National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE)  Teach Computing resources as a basis for providing a clear and comprehensive scheme of work which meets the requirements of the National Curriculum. Children in all year groups are exposed to a range of topics which encourage progression across the key strands of computer science, digital literacy and information technology. All children have access to the hardware and software needed to develop knowledge and skills of digital systems and their applications.
Each class has one computing lesson per week which is used to teach the skills. In addition to this, children have access to further technologies such as iPads and programmable toys (BeeBots). This equipment is used to ensure children have ample opportunities to apply their learning across the curriculum
Online Safety is taught using Project Evolve resources which incorporates the statements from the UK Council for Internet Safety’s (UKCIS) framework “Education for a Connected World”. This is taught within Computing lessons and also through PSHE Jigsaw lessons. Through these lessons, the children have the opportunity to explore and respond to key issues such as digital communication, cyberbullying, online safety, security, plagiarism and social media. We also address e-safety though Safer Internet Day and in assemblies.

Impact

To know more! To remember more! To apply more! The teaching of computing will mirror the expectations of the NC. We will have an increase in the number of children working at ARE and showing an increased understanding in computing.

Upon leaving Victoria Road Primary School to embark on their journey to Key Stage 3, children will be equipped with the skills, knowledge and understanding to confidently continue their computing learning journey.
