Computing content

In Computing, we teach at least the expectations of the EYFS Framework using Development Matters guidance and the Key Stage 1 & 2 National Curriculum Programmes of Study.

Below you will find an overview of what your child will be expected to learn in each of the Key Stages.

EYFS Framework

Years 1-6 National Curriculum: Computing

Curriculum design for Computing:

The design of our computing curriculum is supported by a variety of online resources and has been created to meet the needs of our children. As the children progress through the school, we teach a layering of knowledge, vocabulary and skills for computing, where possible through cross-curricular topics. Although some content may be taught discretely, this means that computing is not taught in isolation, and wherever appropriate it is linked to other areas of the curriculum, for example in topic or maths, giving children the opportunities to develop and reinforce knowledge and skills already established in context.

Curriculum Choices for Computing:

  • We hold an e-safety week annually in February to link with the national 'Safer Internet Day'.
