Computing Curriculum Intent
It is our intent at Beverley St Nicholas CP School to deliver a Computing Curriculum to equip children to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly driven by technology. It is our intention to enable children to find, explore, programme, analyse, exchange and present information and data. We also recognise the importance of developing the skills necessary for children to use information and technology in a discriminating and effective way.
Beverley St Nicholas CP School wants children to know more, remember more and understand more about computing and technology so they leave primary school as computer literate individuals. As a school we recognise that computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that pupils have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this.
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 experiences of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
- Can evaluate and apply information technology (including new or unfamiliar technologies), to analytically solve problems
- Are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
