Our aim is to provide a high-quality computing education which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal role in our pupils’ lives, therefore we want to educate them on how to be caring, responsible and skilful computer scientists. As a school we encourage technology to be embedded across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and inclusive. By the time children leave Filby Primary School, they will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work), information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information) and digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully). We want our pupils to be able to operate in the 21st century workplace and we want them to know the career opportunities that they can aspire to have in the future.
As a school, we follow the computing scheme of work created by Purple Mash 2simple. We use the mixed age scheme of work so that children in each age group will not repeat lessons in the next academic year and will not have gaps in knowledge to fill.
