Our computing curriculum aims to equip children both with the skills they need to produce digital output today and the confidence and understanding to prepare them for the inevitable digital advances of the future. Additionally, we want our children to understand how to keep themselves safe online. Our use of ICT is embedded across our creative curriculum, to ensure children understand the way in which it can be used to support and further learning in any subject.
We are lucky at Rowsley to have access to a range of technology - including Chromebooks, PCs, ipads and beebots - to support our learning in Computing. Children cover a range of units on an annual basis, including e-safety, information technology, digital literacy and computer science. Teachers use their professional judgement to order these to best fit with their half-termly topics. Learning from the previous year is built upon to ensure progression.
Teachers regularly assess capability through observations and looking at completed work. Key objectives to be assessed are taken from the national curriculum to assess key ICT and computing skills each term.
