Computing

In order to ensure our pupils are provided with a balanced curriculum the computing programme of study has been broken down into three aspects of computing at each key Stage.  This allows pupils to develop their “computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world” NC – Computing PoS. 

 

  • Computer Science (CS) – How digital technology works and programming. 

  • Information Technology (IT) – The use of technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. 

  • Digital Literacy (DL) – To express and develop ideas (safely) as active participants in a global world. 

 

        

At Mount Street Primary School, we then develop the children's conceptual knowledge and understanding through 'Big Ideas' which develop both in depth and knowledge as the children progress through the school.

 

 

E-safety 

Each academic year, all year groups focus on aspects of e-safety in the first term.  This is designed to ensure pupils feel confident when talking about any issues arising throughout the year with their peers and class teacher, as well as knowing early on what to do and who to talk to if they have concerns.  Throughout the Computing Curriculum, pupils are taught to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour and ways to report concerns about content and contact. In the Spring term, along with all LAT schools, we all  take part in the global campaign ‘Safer Internet Day’ using the theme and resources to enhance the Computing curriculum.
