Computing

Intent

kjhkhk

At All Souls, we aim to prepare our learners 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 ICT is of increasing importance for children’s future both at home and for employment. 

Our Computing curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in digital literacy, computer science, information technology and online safety 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 the 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.

Implementation

kiuk

Our whole curriculum is shaped by our school vision which aims to enable all children, regardless of background, ability and additional needs, to experience life in all its fullness, so they grow to be the best that they can be. 

We teach the National Curriculum, supported by a clear skills and knowledge progression, which is fully supported by 3BM.  This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. 

To ensure a broad range of skills and understanding, Computing is taught across three main strands: digital literacy, computer science and information technology. 

As part of information technology, children learn to use, express themselves and develop their ideas through ICT e.g. in writing and presenting, as well as exploring art and design using multimedia. 

Within digital literacy, children develop practical skills in the safe use of ICT and the ability to apply these skills to solving relevant, worthwhile problems e.g. understanding safe use of internet, networks and email. 

In computer science, we teach children to understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation. 

We also teach them how to analyse problems, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs, in order to solve such problems. 

At All Souls, we give children access to a wide range of good quality resources and provide cross curricular opportunities for children to apply their Computing knowledge and skills. 

Online safety is taught within each Computing lesson as well as being taught as a unit each year.  Online safety procedures are communicated, and all staff, parents and pupils sign an Acceptable Use Policy.

Impact

k,hn,n

The implementation, of this curriculum, ensures that when children leave All Souls, they are competent and safe users of ICT, with an understanding of how technology works.  They will have developed skills to express themselves and be creative in using digital media and be equipped to apply their skills in Computing to different challenges going forward.
