Computing Curriculum Intention 

At Elton Primary School it is our intention that our computing curriculum empowers our students to be able to confidently and creatively express themselves using a range of multimedia apps and programs on different digital devices.  Our computing curriculum will allow our students to develop a mixture of both independent and teamwork skills when tackling a range of engaging and enjoyable projects. When developing skills such as programming and coding, the children will gain key skills for their lives in our modern society; while simultaneously building their resilience through activities such as problem solving and debugging errors in their code. Through our e-safety lessons we will ensure our children know how to safely enjoy all the wonders of the internet while also being able to question critically the accuracy of the information they come across online.
A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world. Through computing the children learn about how to stay safe when online which links closely with our school’s ‘Relationship and Health Education’ policy.

We deliver our Computing curriculum using the National Centre for Computing Education's "Teach Computing" programmes of study
