Computing

Intent

Within the schools that form the Marlbrook collaboration, we see computing as an important tool to help bring our children’s learning to life. Through the curriculum that we offer we intend to use computing to ensure that our pupils are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of computers and information. We intend our pupils to have many experiences of technology, both from direct teaching and beyond the subject itself, making it a tool they can use to enhance their skill set and use confidently once they left our school.

Implementation

We will implement these intentions directly and discreetly through computing lessons, addressing online safety, coding and problem solving but also through other areas of the curriculum like Art, D&T, Science, English, Drama and Maths. We want to implement the curriculum through other curriculum areas including ways to use abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.

Impact

We want the impact of this curriculum to be that it enables our pupils to use technology in all aspects of their life soundly, with purpose and for it to enhance their skill set for when they leave our school. Specifically, we want our pupils to understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, for them to analyse problems in computational terms, use practical experience of writing computer programs to solve problems. We want our pupils to evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies and to analytically to solve problems.
