Our overall intent is that pupils when they leave Y6 will be equipped within the three areas of: computer science, information technology and digital literacy. Computer science is the foundational knowledge required to understand and interpret the other areas of the computing curriculum. Information Technology provides the contexts for how computers are used in society and we hope to inspire children to be creative in a digital world and appreciate the impact technology has on everyday life. Within Digital Literacy, our priority is to ensure our pupils are equipped to keep themselves safe online and understand the impact of their digital footprint.
ICT is a key subject where we promote Building Learning Power skills: children are constantly encouraged to develop perseverance, collaboration, imitation, interdependence, manage distractions, capitalise, plan, imagine, revise, absorption and their ability to notice. We want children to feel that they belong to a loving, extended school family and through the exploration of a range of physical activities, this supports children to explore and develop their strengths in order to develop strong foundations towards developing a positive healthy lifestyle and well-being.
Our golden threads are: being connected and playing a responsible part within the global community; and utilising a wide range of BLP skills to best of my ability to be an effective problem solver.
For ICT, we follow the Purple Mash scheme of learning. The documents below show the progressive key learning that takes place in this subject across all key stages.
