The core of our computing curriculum is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Our Purple Mash scheme of work builds on this knowledge equipping pupils to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content (see Curriculum Overview for coverage). Pupils are timetabled for one Computing lesson in our computer suite each week as well as an additional lesson for developing their information and communication skills across all areas of the curriculum. Activities are planned to ensure that pupils become digitally literature – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology. As well as the computer room, the children also have access to computers in every classroom and a class set of iPads. In addition to our annual E-Safety Week, ongoing online safety is taught as a part of every topic, every half term.
