Computing

Subject Intent

At Primrose Hill Church of England Academy we understand that a high-quality computing education is essential for pupils to understand computing technologies, and for them to use these skills to become responsible, competent, confident and creative participants of an increasingly digital world.

We follow the NCCE scheme. 

Our children as a computer scienctist: 

I am a computer scientist. I use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. I know the principles of information and computation; how digital systems work and how to use this knowledge to program complex algorithms and instructions. I can create programs, systems and a range of content whilst expressing and developing my interests, making me an active participant in a digital world.

By teaching Computing we aim:

  • to inspire pupils to continue to learn and apply the skills they learn at secondary school, university, and beyond in the workplace.       

As a computer user we want our children...

To be able to connect with others safely and respectfully.

To develop their ability in communicating ideas by using applications and devices throughout the curriculum.

To collect, organise and manipulate data effectively.

To develop competence in coding for a variety of practical and inventive purposes.

Impact

The impact and measure of our computing curriculum is to ensure that children at Primrose Hill Church of England Academy are equipped with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to be ready for the curriculum at Key Stage 3 and for life as an adult in the wider world.
