At Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School, we use the National Curriculum as the starting point for all of our teaching in Computing. The National Curriculum aims for Computing are that all pupils:
Working with guidance from CAS and our local authority advisor, the Computing skills progression for each year group was developed by the school teaching staff, allowing us to create meaningful links between subjects and inspiring our children to learn.
By the time all children leave ACPS they will have developed a broad range of the transferable skills and knowledge required to succeed in our increasingly technologically-centered world. Children will have a solid foundation in the skills needed to adapt to future developments in this area. All children will have equal access to high quality computing resource, regardless of their home circumstances. This will allow them to become informed consumers and future developers.
We teach a broad and balanced curriculum, varying between teaching discrete lessons to develop key skills and cross-curricular lessons to emphasise the use of IT as a tool in everyday life. Our Digital Citizenship curriculum and work with the local authority online safety consultant encourages children to become responsible users of technology and has strong links to our PSHE curriculum.
Please see the curriculum overviews in the Year Groups section of the website to learn more about how Computing fits into the cross-curricular learning at our school.
