Computing

Our Aims

“A high-quality computing education equips pupils to understand and change the world through computational thinking.  It develops and requires logical thinking and precision.  It combines creativity with rigour: pupils apply underlying principles to understand real-world systems, and to create purposeful and usable artefacts.” Computing curriculum, Programmes of Study (2019)

As computing is an increasing part of life today, at Rosley C of E School it is essential that all our pupils gain the confidence and ability that they need in this subject and to prepare them for a rapidly-evolving technological world.

We aim that all pupils understand how to use technology safely and the importance of ‘keeping safe online’, that all our pupils are digitally literate in the key computing skills and recognise the links with other subjects, and that they are able to express their ideas using computer technology and are inspired to be creative with technology.

Our pupils’ ask us for computing that is fun and creative. We aim to provide a computing curriculum which allows them to learn new skills which can be transferred across the curriculum and to increase their confidence in technology which will help them in later life.

Please find below the Progression in Computing documents, which show the key knowledge and skills covered across the school.
