Computing Curriculum Vision
At Valence Primary School Computing is taught through a broad and balanced curriculum that ensures children can develop depth and progression in their knowledge and skills.
At Valence Primary School Computing is taught through a broad and balanced curriculum that ensures children can develop depth and progression in their knowledge and skills. It is our intention to enable children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating and effective way. We want children to know more, remember more and understand more in computing so that they leave primary school computer-literate. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention at Valence that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this.
We intend to build a computing curriculum that develops pupil’s learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge of the world around them. Our curriculum will also ensure all pupils can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.
At Valence we intend to build a computing curriculum that prepares all pupils to live safely in an increasingly digital British society where pupils can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
A clear and effective, scheme of work that provides coverage in line with the National Curriculum. Teaching and learning should facilitate progression across all key stages within the strands of digital literacy, information technology and computer science and E-safety. Children will have access to the hardware (computers, tablets, programmable equipment) and software that they need to develop knowledge and skills of digital systems and their applications.
Children will have the opportunity to explore and respond to key issues related to E-Safety such as digital communication, cyber-bullying, online safety, security and social media. At Valence parents and careers are informed when issues relating to online safety arise and further information/support is provided if required.
We encourage our children to become responsible digital citizens and emphasise the importance of online safety.
