Computing Intent Statement and Progression Map
Computing Intent Statement
We believe that teaching computing is a core priority. We want to prepare our children for a rapidly changing technological world. ICT is embedded throughout the curriculum and children are given access to computers and the internet as part of their ongoing, continuous provision in each class. Children are taught coding and programming, some of the oldest children take part in national programming competitions e.g. Lego Robotics. Children are taught the skills to make use of the internet and specific software packages and to help them to stay safe online. It is our aim that our children are given positive experiences which enable them to become confident and critical users of this technology. All children have access to our schools' password-protected, safe learning platforms - Google classroom. These are areas where children can communicate with each other, upload their work and further explore the things they are learning about in school.
