Computing

Computing at Primrose Hill

Intent:

Technology is everywhere, and as children leave our school and head out into the world, technology will become a crucial part of their lives. Before leaving Primrose Hill we endeavour to model and educate our pupils to use technology effectively, responsibly and safely. We will do this through an ambitious computing curriculum that will provide opportunities for children to use technology in a creative way to support learning, conduct research and present learning in interesting and innovative ways. 

Computing will be taught through  

  • Computer science
  • Digital literacy
  • Information technology. 

 

These strands  will drive our curriculum to give children a broad knowledge and understanding of a range of computer programs and uses for technology. 

We understand the accessibility opportunities that technology can offer our children and, along with our knowledge rich curriculum, we aim to find a balance to enable children to demonstrate their knowledge in a creative way. We hope by the end of KS2 children will be confident and competent to choose the best technology tool to present and share their learning.

Aspects of the commuting curriculum are taught in isolation, however, we encourage staff to embed elements of computing across the curriculum to allow creative outcomes and increase confidence and skills in technology. 

Through the use of ‘Be Nice Online’ children will have a clear understanding about the correct conduct online, what to do if they feel uncomfortable online and who to talk to. Online safety will be taught to ensure children are aware of the responsibility and consequences of their actions and decisions online. We, as a school, will model positive use of social media through use of our school twitter account and communication on our school website.
