At Little Sutton Church of England Primary School, we aim to prepare our pupils for their future by giving them the opportunities to gain knowledge and skills that will equip them for an ever changing digital world. Knowledge and understanding of computing is of increasing importance for children’s future prospects, both at home and for employment. Our Children must be exposed to a thorough and robust Computing curriculum in order for them to participate effectively and safely in the digital world beyond our gates. Our Computing curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in digital literacy, computer science, information technology and online safety to ensure that children become competent in safely using, as well as understanding, technology. These strands are revisited repeatedly through a range of themes during children’s time in school to ensure the learning is embedded and skills are successfully developed. Through the teaching of Computing we aim to develop the processes of computer systems, technologies, hardware and variety of software. We also aim to provide the children with opportunities to work through the essential elements and concepts of computer science, programming and data handling as well as building on the children’s research, communication and presentation skills. Our intention is that Computing also supports children’s creativity and cross curricular learning to engage children and enrich their experiences in school.
