Computing

Vision:  To enable pupils to be digitally literate and use the Internet in a safe and respectful way.  To have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed throughout their education and in later life and use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. 

Intent: Computing  is taught mainly using a thematic approach.  Longterm plans identify the context of the learning, whilst medium term plans identify more detailed content and sequences of learning.  There is a whole school approach to online safety.  The online safety aspect of computing is taught mainly through computing and RSE, but embedded in other subjects and through assemblies .  Objectives from the RSE curriculum and the Education for a Connected World document have been mapped out to ensure comprehensive coverage. 

The expectations at each year group are made visible to the pupils through differentiated success criteria and I can statements.
