Computing

Subject Intent

All pupils are entitled to develop skills and knowledge that enable them to become equipped for the rest of their lives. Computing and technology have grown to be a part of our everyday life and at Shenley Primary School, we allow our children to develop their skills, enjoyment, and love of computing through an inspiring curriculum. We recognise that it is vital to equip our pupils with the knowledge that allows them to communicate effectively and safely in an ever-changing digital world beyond Shenley Primary School.

Computing is taught using the ‘Hertfordshire Computing Scheme’ that has been developed by Herts for Learning. The planning allows for a clear structure across the year groups with an independent assessment task within each topic. Teachers ensure that all learners can experience challenge and successes across all learning strands. At Shenley, we believe that computing is an essential part of the curriculum and wider life. It is a subject that weaves itself across the curriculum and should be an integral part of all learning, therefore, we create cross-curricular opportunities to allow the children to practise and perfect their skills. We want our children to be at the forefront of new technology, with an inquisitive mind for learning.

We ensure our pupils are taught the skills and knowledge that will allow them to use technology effectively and more importantly – safely. It is key for our children to understand the consequences of using the internet and allow them to deepen their knowledge, therefore ensuring that they keep both themselves and peers safe online.

 

National Curriculum Aims for Computing

The National Curriculum for Computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

· Understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.

· Analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.

· Evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.

·  Are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
