Computing

It is our intent at Gordon Primary School to provide all of our children with a high-quality education in computing which provides access to an ever changing and expanding digital world. We wish to develop a love of computing and provide children with the ability to enhance their knowledge, skills and understanding through different types of media whilst keeping safety at the forefront of their minds. We believe that this will give our children the tools they need to succeed in a digital world. We follow the Teach Computing Scheme of Work for computing. This ensures that our teaching and learning shows progression and the approach is consistent across the school.

 

By the time they leave primary education, our pupils will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum:

  • computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work), 
  • information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information) 
  • digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully).
