Computing Curriculum

Computers are now part of everyday life. For most of us, technology is essential to our lives, at home and at work. ‘Computational thinking’ is a skill children must be taught if they are to be ready for the workplace and able to participate effectively in this digital world.

The new national curriculum for computing has been developed to equip young people in England with the foundational skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. Through the new programme of study for computing, they will learn how computers and computer systems work, they will design and build programs, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content.

At Stubbins we are dedicated to helping each child acquire the above-mentioned skills through a range of lessons and activities. The following strands are taught in all the year groups in KS1 and KS2:

Computer Science
This involves children being taught computer science, which includes the art of programming and coding from Years 1-6 as well as in the Foundation Stage. Computing is taught both explicitly and discretely where it underpins lessons in other areas of the curriculum.

Information Technology
This invovles children's purposeful use of digital technologies across the curriculum to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content as well as recognise common uses of information technology beyond school.

Digital Literacy
This involves the teaching of eSafety where children are taught to use technology safely and respectfully, keep personal information private and evaluate the internet content for suitability and report any inappropriate webpages to staff and parents.
