Computing 2023- 2024

Curriculum Statement of Intent

Throughout the AddMore federation, we aspire for all of our students to become confident, ambitious and respectful citizens within an ever evolving digital world.

We recognise that knowledge and understanding of computing is of increasing importance for our children’s future, both at home and for employment, and have therefore developed a broad and balanced curriculum to support our children to become competent and experienced users of a range of technology. Therefore, our curriculum focuses on stands such as; computer systems and Network, programming, creating media, data and information and Esafety, with the aim of providing our students with a breadth of skills and knowledge.

As a federation, we have chosen the Teach Computing scheme developed by The National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) which is funded by the Department for Education. This scheme is used from Year 1 through to Year 6.  This scheme of work supports our teachers in delivering fun and engaging lessons which help to raise standards and allow all pupils to achieve to their full potential. We are confident that this scheme of work not only meets the national vision for Computing but provides flexibility, cross-curricular links and a clear progression of skills and understanding.

Using technology safely is at the heart of our curriculum and we provide regular opportunities for our students to understand and explore the advantages and disadvantages associated with online experiences. We support our children to make respectful, sensible decisions when communicating online and we foster an open and supportive environment, where children know they can access advice and support.

We believe that computing should be taught not only as a dedicated lesson but that it should also compliment and support learning across the curriculum. This allows children to present their ideas and learning in creative ways, further embedding their computing skills.  We also understand the accessibility opportunities technology can provide for our pupils, offering alternative ways of communication.
