Computing Curriculum Intent
We aim to prepare our children for a rapidly changing world through the use of technology at St Joseph’s and to ensure they are safe whilst using digital technologies.
Our computing curriculum is designed to enable them to use computational thinking and creativity to further understand our world. Our curriculum design has deep links with mathematics, and is used to blend with key topic areas in each year group.
At the core of our computing curriculum 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, we intend for our children to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
We aim to ensure that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology - as active participants in a digital world.
We intend to use a range of hardware and software that link with facilities children will have potential access to at home, so as to drive children to continue to pursue their learning out of the classroom and develop the ‘real word’ links.
