Computing

With technology playing such a significant role in society today, we believe ‘Computational thinking’ is a skill that all children must be taught if they are to be able to participate effectively and safely in this digital world.

Computing Intent

A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use creativity to understand and change the world. Our core scheme ‘Rising Stars: Switched On’ is supplemented with resources from Teachcomputing.org. to cover the following strands:

  • Programming
  • Computational Thinking
  • Creativity
  • Computer Networks
  • Communication and Collaboration
  • Productivity

 

Self-image and Identity                                Health, Wellbeing and Lifestyle

Bullying                                                           Online Relationships

Managing Online Information                     Privacy and Security

Copyright and Ownership                            Online Reputation

 

Our scheme has full National Curriculum coverage. Each computing unit is relevant to the pupils’ lives,  requiring them to solve a real-life problem and helping them make connections and see the ‘big picture’. There are close links with our RSHE planning, and wider cross-curricular links are fully integrated so that pupils continually practice and improve the skills they learn, ensuring they become digitally literate and are able to express themselves and develop their ideas through information and computer technology at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in an ever-changing world.

 

 

We believe that online safety is an essential part of safeguarding and acknowledge our duty to ensure that all learners and staff are protected from potential harm online.

We take internet safety extremely seriously.  We have an Online Safety Policy that provides guidance for teachers and children. Me-safety is addressed in every computing unit through planned lessons using 'Education for a Connected World', Project Evolve and Internet Legend resources, so that our children understand how to stay safe when using technology.                                                  Online safety messages are reinforced whenever technology or the internet is in use.

The eight aspects of online safety: 

Self-image and Identity                                Health, Wellbeing and Lifestyle

Bullying                                                           Online Relationships

Managing Online Information                     Privacy and Security

Copyright and Ownership                            Online Reputation
