Intent, Implementation and Impact
Our curriculum intent in computing is to inspire children to independently build knowledge and the skills of computational thinking. As children progress through the curriculum, they will be able to express and develop their ideas through information and communication technology. This will nurture and prepare them for future careers and to be active participants in our digital world.
In our school through support of specialist teaching we will ensure that all pupils:
- are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
- 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
Our children have the knowledge and skills of computational thinking and creativity. They are resilient in an ever-changing technological world. They can express and develop their ideas using information and communication technology. Our children are prepared to build for future careers as active participants in a digital world.
Here at Our Lady’s, we follow a scheme of work for Computing from the Knowsley City Learning Centre.
