At Rusper Primary School we intend that children should master Computing to such an extent that they can go on to have careers within Computing and make use of Computing effectively in their everyday lives, without being completely reliant on technology.
Our children will be taught to use technology responsibly and carefully, being mindful of how their behaviour, words and actions can affect others.
Our children will be taught Computing in a way that ensures progression of skills, and follows a sequence to build on previous learning.
Our children will gain experience and skills of a wide range of technology in a way that will enhance their learning opportunities, enabling them to use technology across a range of subjects to be creative and solve problems, ensuring they make progress.
We follow a broad and balanced Computing curriculum that builds on previous learning and provides both support and challenge for learners. We follow a Computing scheme that ensures and progression of skills and covers all aspects of the Computing curriculum.
Across a term, Computing will be taught as a string of lessons for between one or two weeks. These sessions will be timetabled as part of the weekly ‘Project’ sessions.
Children’s work will be stored on the school’s network for reference and assessment.
We want to ensure that Computing is embedded in our whole school curriculum and that opportunities for enhancing learning by using technology are always taken.
