The computing curriculum is designed to equip pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.

Computing has deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.

Following the national curriculum aims, our children gain a range of computational knowledge and skills that will enable them to survive in a digital world. Computing is an integral part of the wider curriculum and is used to enhance learning in many areas.

We endeavour to enable our children to become responsible, independent and resilient users of technology. Children are taught to use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.


Since engaging with Google in 2017, we have invested in Chromebook devices for pupils and have been using the Google Suite for Education as a tool for learning. This enables high quality lessons and a platform that allows collaborative projects to take place.

We use a number of highly visual software programmes like Purple Mash as well as digital tools like photo/video editing and green screen technology to bring the curriculum to life. All children adhere to a computing code of conduct, and we take great responsibility in delivering our online safety lessons to children and their families.
