Computing

Intent
At Eastlands we know that technology is rapidly changing and our computing curriculum is designed to reflect this through high quality lessons with innovative resources and equipment. We aim to educate our children on how to be safe in a digital world by teaching them to use technology positively, confidently, responsibly and safely. Our children will follow a computing curriculum that that is well planned and sequenced to ensure progression for all. In addition to this, transferable skills learnt in computing lessons will be applied in other subjects to embed computing across the whole curriculum making learning creative and engaging. 

 

Implementation

Our Computing curriculum is taught through three aspects; Computer Science, Information Technology and Digital Literacy and has deep links with Mathematics, Science, and Design and Technology. At Eastlands we use Purple Mash to support the delivery of computing lessons.

In the Early Years (Nursery and Reception) children are exposed to a wide range of technology and learn how to use it safely. We follow the Development Matters 2021 and whilst this document has limited links to technology and computing, staff are passionate about ensuring children are capable and confident learners preparing them for Year 1 and beyond. In KS1 and KS2 planned units are revisited each year to deepen children’s understanding of computational concepts and provide opportunity to apply and extend their knowledge. At Eastlands we do refine some units to make learning personal to the needs of our school and children.

Computing Subject Drivers

Impact

Children are proficient in using technology, they are equipped with the vocabulary and knowledge they need to be successful learners in computing. We measure the impact of our computing curriculum using the endpoints for Computing, using evidence from lessons and teacher judgement. Children are encouraged to self and peer assess each other’s work for example finding bugs in each other’s coding. Computing subject leader monitors Computing to ensure progress is made and that the curriculum continues to meet the schools needs. Staff are confident in teaching computing and discussions with children show great enthusiasm towards the subject. As a school we feel the latter is extremely important, as high levels of enjoyment promote maximum engagement and learning.
