Digital Literacy, communication and problem-solving are fundamental to living in our digital age. It is necessary for us to support our pupils to become digital citizens; individuals responsible for how they use technology to interact with the world around them. At its heart, digital literacy is the ability to use practical knowledge and critical thinking to safely, effectively and responsibly create and engage with digital content using a range of technologies.

Our Computing curriculum focuses on three core areas.

Computer Science
Children in all year groups are taught the basics of computer programming. Children use hands on resources such as ‘Beebots’ to begin to understand coding concepts. In Key Stage 1 this is extended to Scratch to develop understanding of complex computer games, programs and animations.  

Internet Safety 
Internet Safety plays a fundamental role in our safeguarding and child protection measures. We recognise that we must ensure our processes and systems keep children safe, while also teaching pupils about online safety. Our school promotes the SMART approach (Safe, Meet, Accept, Reliable and Tell). We discuss internet safety throughout the year with both children and parents and have recently taken part in Safer Internet Day which aims to raise awareness of a safer and better internet for all.

Data and Multimedia
We aim for pupils to be competent and confident in a variety of software programs for example, Microsoft Word. Central to the curriculum is understanding how different software packages work together.   


Each year group in the school has access to a set of iPads, in addition to a class computer. They are used extensively in lessons across the curriculum to support learning as well as for dedicated Computing lessons.
