Computing Subject Leader: ?
Computing is an integral part of everyday life and will play an immeasurable part in our children’s futures. Sedleys will provide our children with the skills, creativity and enthusiasm to live and thrive in a world increasingly dependent on computing.
The Computing Curriculum 2014 aims to ensure that all pupils can understand and apply the most important principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation. In other words, it gives children the necessary skills to break down a problem, predict what will happen and use logic to find a solution through practical experience.
We aim to develop pupils’ computing skills, knowledge, understanding and capability through taught computing lessons and to provide opportunities for pupils to apply and consolidate their capability across all curriculum contexts as well as to provide an environment where access to computing resources is natural and commonplace.
Each child will be able to use the Internet in a safe and respectful way. They will understand the necessary precautions to take, to stay safe and know where to seek help. No child will feel threatened or unsafe whilst using the Internet at school or at home. Children will also utilise the Internet efficiently to enhance their learning of all subjects. The school will provide a rich bank of curriculum-based resources for children and parents to access at home.
Computing in Each Stage
In EYFS, pupils will learn basic information about computing. Pupils will familiarise themselves with touch screens and computer equipment and will increase their confidence throughout the year in using computers.
Learning is adapted where necessary to support SEND/EAL pupils and to challenge more able pupils.
