Computing Curriculum

At Boothstown Methodist Primary School, we follow the National Curriculum programme of study which covers all three areas of Computing: Computer Science, Information Technology and Digital Literacy. We have carefully selected a scheme of work that we feel gives knowledge and experience beyond the National Curriculum statements for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Computing is planned, taught and assessed using the online scheme of work, resources and assessment tool from Teach Computing. Teach Computing provides an innovative progression framework where computing content (concepts, knowledge, skills, and objectives) are organised into interconnected networks called learning graphs. Teachers use these learning graphs to directly inform lesson planning and to identify opportunities to assess pupil understanding at key points in a lesson or unit. A key part of implementing our computing curriculum is to ensure that safety of our pupils is paramount. We take online safety very seriously and we aim to give children the necessary skills to keep themselves safe online. Online safety and responsible use of technology are topics covered in discreet computing lessons, PSHE lessons, assemblies, during events such as Safer Internet Day and throughtout cross curriculum use of technology.


Whilst we use the units provided in this scheme of work, teachers include cross curricular curriculum links in their medium term plans . Our learning journey beings in Early years with children using technology to support their play development. Computing in EYFS encourages children to experiment and explore as they allow their curiosity to drive their learning.


In KS1and KS2 our computing learning journey continues as below:
