Computing intent statement
At Alice Ingham RC Primary School, our Computing curriculum aims to give our pupils the fundamental life-skills, knowledge and understanding that they will embrace and utilise for the rest of their life. We want our pupils to have a breadth of experience to develop their understanding of themselves as individuals within their community but also as members of a wider global community, as responsible digital citizens. Our high-quality computing education equips pupils to develop an understanding of how it has deep links with other subjects.
We believe it is important to engage the children with cross-curricular learning through interacting with a variety of technology. Therefore, we endeavour to provide computing opportunities to support learning across the entire curriculum and ensure that our curriculum is assessable to every child. We focus on a progression of skills in digital literacy, computer science, information technology and online safety (digital citizenship) to ensure that children become competent in safely using, as well as understanding, technology. Through the strands of computing, children are introduced to a variety of technology, including laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards, allowing them to continually practice and improve the skills they learn. Our children can therefore become active participants in a digital world.
