Computing Intent Statement:
The Computing curriculum within our school is designed to provide the children with a wide range of skills required to meet the demands of the modern world. We aim to enable our children to access a range of different software and technology within the curriculum, which will enhance their knowledge of both Computing and the wider world of technology.
Within our curriculum content, we expose the children to a variety of topics, which include Computer coding, using and evaluating software, word processing and applying skills to the internet. A high quality and engaging curriculum allows us to provide the children with an in depth understanding of the technological environment.
While engaging the children in the use of technology within the world we live in, we aim bring elements of this into our curriculum by emphasising the importance of safety online. We do this by covering e-safety within our curriculum content, hosting assemblies from external visitors and curriculum-focused days. With an ever-changing world in terms of technology, we feel it is vitally important that our children are aware of ways in which they can facilitate their own safety in online technology particularly within the use of social media.
As a school, we aim to provide and promote a Computing curriculum, which meets the needs and requirements of all children, regardless of any potential barriers that they face, while at the same time allowing them to meet their goals and aspirations within the subject as part of The Smawthorne Experience and their future.
