In an ever-changing technological world, we aim to give our children the life skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a safe and socially responsible way.

Our children will begin to become independent, digitally literate users of a range of technologies.  They will learn the importance of safety in the online world and be responsible for their own data.

Computing allows the opportunity to develop creativity, resilience, problem solving and critical thinking skills across the curriculum.


The units for key stages 1 and 2 are based on a spiral curriculum. This means that each of the themes is revisited regularly (at least once in each year group) and pupils revisit each theme through a new unit that consolidates and builds on prior learning within that theme. This style of curriculum design reduces the amount of knowledge lost through forgetting, as topics are revisited yearly. It also ensures that connections are made even if different teachers are teaching the units within a theme in consecutive years. 

The Teach Computing Curriculum is structured in units. For these units to be coherent, the lessons within a unit must be taught in order. However, across a year group, the units themselves do not need to be taught in order, with the exception of ‘Programming’ units, where concepts and skills rely on prior learning and experiences.
