At St Peter and St Paul, we aim to prepare our pupils for their future by giving them the opportunities to gain knowledge and develop skills that will equip them for an ever changing digital world. Knowledge and understanding of all disciplines of computing is of increasing importance for the children’s future, both at home and for employment. Our Computing curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in Online safety, digital literacy, computer science and information technology to ensure that children become competent in safely using, as well as understanding, technology.
These strands are revisited repeatedly through a range of themes during children’s time in school to ensure the learning is embedded and skills are successfully developed. Our intention is that Computing also supports children’s creativity and cross curricular learning to engage children and enrich their experiences in school.
We primarily follow the Purple Mash scheme of work but incorporate other schemes to best suit the needs of our children. An overview of what we teach and when can be found below.
