Intent

At Bramford Primary School our intention is that all children are fully prepared for the technological needs of the future and for every child to become a confident online. It is our aim to widen our children’s horizons through a range of opportunities. The Computing at Bramford aims to embed computing creatively in the curriculum through providing children with regular access to digital devices. Through this approach, children both independently and collaboratively apply computing skills to research about the world around them. We are committed to enabling our children to be able to engage critically with the online world and to be able to navigate their way, independently and safely, through a positive and secure use of information technology.

We will deliver a curriculum that ensures our children can:

  • understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies
  • be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

All children will leave school as resilient, independent and creative thinkers with the confidence and ambition to use and develop their own interests. In doing so, they will confidently be able to use and be in touch with current technological advances. Children will leave equipped with the skills for a safe and productive life in the digital world.

Implementation

The Computing curriculum is monitored by the STEM Hub and subject lead to promote continuous improvement. This is achieved through reviewing, evaluating, sharing best practises as well as undertaking continuous professional development to stay at the forefront of the ever-changing technological world. The pupils have access to a range of devices to support their use of computing skills. Remote learning platforms such as Purple Mash and UNIFY provides additional opportunities for children to engage with technology. Through the delivery of a rich and varied provision our children are provided with the opportunity to nurture and develop talents and interests.

Impact

The Computing curriculum provides opportunities for all children to collaborate, learn and develop skills using the characteristics of effective learning. The children leave us with a firm foundation of subject skills that can further support other areas of learning as well as future employment. The children take risks and make mistakes; understanding how to debug and revaluate before completing a task. Our Computing Curriculum has developed confident problem-solvers who are empowered and skilful to strive for excellence in all that they do.
