To equip children with the technical skills required to access the jobs of the future and to ensure children have the knowledge, skills and understanding to keep themselves safe online.
Computing at Croyland Primary School
With the increased demand of our digital world, it is essential to equip children with the skills and confidence to not only use various technological devices but to also understand the mechanics of creating new technologies and programmes.
Within our computing curriculum, our pupils will become explorers, creators, problem solvers and inventors with a tool bag of skills which they can apply across various programs and devices. Children will be taught the principles of information and computation, will gain an understanding of how digital systems work and will be able to use this knowledge to programme their own creations on a range of software and devices. Whilst recognising the benefits that technology brings, children will be taught about the risks that the technological world can present. They will learn strategies to ensure safe and positive experiences whilst online at an age appropriate level.
We have collaboratively developed a long term Computing plan that gives children the opportunity to build on previously learnt knowledge and skills, and allows them to revisit concepts and understanding. We follow the SWGfL Digital Literacy Curriculum to ensure progressive, up to date teaching of Online Safety throughout all year groups.
