“The computer was born to solve problems that did not exist before.” – Bill Gates
Miss Griffiths - Computing Lead
At St. Andrew’s Primary School, our aim is to develop creative and computational thinkers through high quality teaching and a broad range of opportunities to equip children with skills for the future. The curriculum will teach children key knowledge about how computers and computer systems work and how they are programmed and developed. Learners will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, through a range of unplugged and plugged in computing opportunities.
By the end of year 6, children will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: computer science (programming and understanding how computer systems work), information technology (using computer systems to present, share and store information) and digital literacy (using technology safely and respectfully and ensure questioning digital content). The objectives within each strand are built upon across each team and ensure that all children have a solid understanding of computing to prepare them for life outside of school.
