The Computing Vision

The Computing curriculum  at Sandford Hill Primary School will enable our pupils to become thoughtful, respectful and confident digital citizens who are provided with opportunities to improve their digital literacy in a technology-centric world.​The pupils will understand and apply computing knowledge and skills safely from across the curriculum in their everyday lives, their future workplace and within wider society. ​

 

The Aims for Computing:

  • The pupils will use a variety of high-quality hardware and software – through the use of 1:1 devices in KS2 and access to technology in EYFS and KS1​.
  • The pupils will use technology imaginatively to inspire and include all pupils, removing barriers for learning and encouraging creativity.​
  • The adults will provide an exciting, purposeful and challenging Computing curriculum for all pupils.​
  • The adults will instil critical thinking, reflective learning and a ‘can do’ attitude for all our pupils, particularly when engaging with technology and its associated resources.​
  • The adults will enable pupils to become responsible, respectful and competent users of data, information and communication technology in line with the Education for a Connected World e-Safety scheme of work.​

    An overview of Computing at Sandford Hill

    Welcome to Computing at Sandford Hill where  we are committed to providing children with the skills and knowledge needed to support their existence in a digital world. Our Computing curriculum ensures our children are provided with opportunities to become digitally literate in a world that is rapidly changing as technology evolves.

    We place our children’s safety at the forefront of our Computing vision and our comprehensive e-Safety policy and curriculum ensures our children are equipped with the knowledge to become responsible and safe users alongside making positive contributions online. Our e-Safety curriculum covers the eight aspects of online education as outlined in the ‘Education for a Connected World’ guidance.

    As a school, we have chosen to follow the Purple Mash Computing Scheme of Work. This supports our teachers in delivering fun and engaging lessons which help to raise standards and allow all pupils to achieve to their full potential. The scheme of work meets the national vision for Computing and it provides immense flexibility and strong cross-curricular links. To support our school vision and value of providing children with the opportunities to become digitally literate, there is an expectation that Purple Mash is used as a teaching tool to support all curriculum subjects across the school, not just Computing.
