Intent

Computing at Church Eaton equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Children will explore the deep links with mathematics, science, and design technology and gain insights into both natural and artificial systems. Pupils will be taught computer science, the principles of information and communication, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. All children will be equipped with the knowledge and understanding to use information technology to create programs, systems and a wide range of content. Making close links with our PSHE curriculum, pupils will become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology. All children will become proficient with ICT at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.


Implementation

Computing at Church Eaton is taught discretely in each class. The Teach Computing curriculum is used across the school to provide excellent coverage of the national curriculum objectives. This curriculum is adapted where necessary, to be more applicable to the children at our school. At the forefront of our computing curriculum is digital literacy. We ensure that all children are equipped with the knowledge of how to stay safe online and what to do if they are worried about anything.

As a school, we observe Safer Internet Day and plan different activities across the 4 classes.
