Computing – Statement of Intent
We believe that computing is an essential part of the curriculum and an integral feature of all learning. Our computing curriculum will enable you to develop a wide range of skills and understanding that will equip you for the rest of your life. You will be taught to use technology safely and respectfully.
In Early Years you will have access to technology that enables you to explore the rich world around you. You will understand how technology plays an important part in modern life. In KS1 and KS2 you will use tablets and computers, discretely and as part of exciting cross-curricular lessons, to explore your intuitive ICT skills and learn problem solving skills that you can transfer to all areas of learning. You will be taught the skills to understand, implement and correct algorithms as well as how to debug simple programs.
You are the future scientists, pilots, doctors and so much more! All the computing skills that you will learn at St Mary’s will enrich your future careers and give you a fantastic skill set to tackle whatever you choose to do with confidence.
At St Mary's, we use Purple Mash to deliver our Computing curriculum.
