Computing

The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

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

At Rangeworthy, we ensure that this is achieved by:

  • Following the South Gloucestershire Scheme of Work for computing
  • Teaching the full range of computing skills regularly, using a range of different devices
  • Ensuring that children have access to computers day to day (there is a bank desktop computers in each classroom and classes all have access to ‘learnpads’)
  • Ensuring that the use of computers is integrated into our Creative Curriculum so that children are able to use their computing skills for a range of purposes and in a range of different contexts
  • Develop a secure understanding of the safe use of technology through our curriculum and regular focus weeks
