Curriculum - Computing
We recognise the importance of providing all children with a broad and balanced curriculum which is engaging and encompasses all aspects of our vision and values.
A thematic unit approach is taken when planning much of the curriculum, incorporating the framework of the National Curriculum 2014 and our own school curriculum enrichment and enhancement activities.
Staff plan together initially to develop ideas for the curriculum as part of a Long Term Plan and then work in teams and individually to develop unit plans and tailor specific activities for their own classes, taking into account individual needs.
Internet Safety is an integral part of the Computing Curriculum at Spratton CE Primary and children are routinely taught different aspects of keeping themselves safe when using technology. There are regularly updated resources on our school website and our school newsletter often contains advice to help parents and families to learn how to stay safe online at home and in school. This regularly includes information about apps and games children are playing as well as support for parents in facilitating discussions about this topic. Copies of the newsletter, including historic copies, can be downloaded from the 'Newsletters' section of the website.
Children have been enjoying computing lessons in our refurbished IT suite and getting to grips with our new computing programme ‘Purple Mash’. UKS2 have begun to use algorithms and debug code to fix problems.
