The Computing Curriculum Intention
Through the Computing Curriculum, we aim to equip children with the skills to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.
Pupils should learn to:
Understand and apply concepts of a computer, including problem solving, whilst also using them safely.
- At St Joseph’s we wanted to develop industry links to raise pupil interaction, we regularly attend Computing sessions at BT Adastral Park.
- Computing is taught cross curricularly. We do this by using computers in our other subjects. This means our computing skills are being developed and we can apply our skills to real life problems.
- We build upon problem solving by learning about, and applying, debugging skills in a variety of contexts, including coding.
- We aim to develop progression in Computing by ensuring learning in purposeful, we do this by embedding Computing into our thematic Topic approach
- We understand the importance of internet safety and invest in an E-safety programme of study. We embed specific lessons in this area at least once a half term.
- We promote e-safety regularly to parents and carers and invest in teacher CPD.
