Our Computing curriculum is carefully designed to ensure a progressive and coherent learning journey across all year groups. We believe in a hands-on, practical approach to learning, where pupils are actively engaged in real-world activities that promote problem-solving and collaboration. Our curriculum covers three main strands: computer science, information technology, and digital literacy. By the end of their primary education, pupils will have developed a deep understanding of computational thinking, algorithms, and coding concepts. They will be proficient users of various software tools and show a high level of digital literacy. Pupils will be confident in using technology to enhance their learning experience across the curriculum.

The intent of our Computing curriculum is to

  • Empower future innovators and digital citizens.
  • Develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.
  • Foster digital wellbeing and awareness.

How Computing links with our school values

Resilience – Children are taught to problem solve and develop their computational thinking, evaluating and refining their ideas to achieve desired outcomes. They are encouraged to persevere when facing a challenge.
Aspiration – Children are taught to approach problems in creative ways in order to achieve their goals.
Integrity – Children work in collaboration with others and are trusted to use hardware independently to support their learning.
Respect – The importance of e-safety and how to stay safe online is a theme which is an integral part of our curriculum. This includes key themes of inclusion when using online applications both in and out of school.


  • We follow the National Curriculum, EYFS Statutory framework and Education for a Connected World
  • The Computing curriculum is built around three main strands: E-Safety and Digital Literacy, Computer Science and Information Technology.
  • An in-depth curriculum progression document indicates the key skills and knowledge children need to be taught in each year group alongside the appropriate key vocabulary.
  • We use a variety of different hardware systems. Such as Chromebooks, iPads, Lego Wedo, Sphero and Bee-bots to complement our learning.
  • We use cross-curricular links to foster curiosity and engage children in their learning.


  • The teaching of the computing curriculum enables all children to use technology with confidence.
  • All children leave the school knowing how to be safe online and who to speak to when they feel unsafe.
  • Children will be critical thinkers and able to understand how to make informed and appropriate digital choices in the future.
  • Children will understand the importance that technology will have going forward in both their educational and working life and in their social and personal futures.
