Computing at Rumboldswhyke Church of England Primary School

Intent:
Computing is split into four areas – Code, Connect, Communicate, Collect.

Our Computing curriculum is designed so children develop the fluency and capability to use a range of applications om a range of devices to prepare them for a future technological world.

It should:

  • allow children to use technology to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsible and creatively.
  • develop problem solving, programming and data handling skills.
  • be embedded in learning experiences wherever possible so skills are used for an authentic purpose that enhances learning or presentation.
  • develop resilience, cooperation and confidence.
  • Encourage children to be discerning about the relationships they build online.
  • Overall, we strive for pupils to become confident digital users as well as supportive, respectful and responsible members of society, both on line and off line.

Implementation:
Computing is taught throughout our Learning Experiences where ever possible. It is used as a tool to enhance learning and presentation of learning. There is progression of computing skills and knowledge taught across the school.

Impact:
What we expect you to see:

  • Happy and engaged learners.
  • Engagement and perseverance.
  • Self-motivated and cooperative children.
  • Children talking about, sharing and reflecting on their learning.
  • Open ended investigations – low threshold, high ceiling tasks.
