At Bridge and Patrixbourne CEP School we believe computing, like all subjects, should engage, inspire and challenge children as well as provide them with the skills, creativity and enthusiasm to live and thrive in a world increasingly dependent on computing. We recognise that as a school we have a responsibility to prepare the pupils for their future by improving their knowledge of and understanding of how imperative technology is as an aid to learning and the real world beyond school.

Our Computing program of study has been carefully developed to allow us to deliver an engaging curriculum that will appeal to and inspire our children. The purpose of our curriculum is to provide a high-quality computing education that equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. To ensure a broad range of skills and understanding, Computing is taught across three main strands: digital literacy, computer science and information technology.

The development of ICT is changing the home, the workplace and not least the school. Its impact on the lives of people and the economy continues to grow. It is therefore essential that pupils can take advantage of its opportunities and understand its effects. Each child will be able to access the Internet and use the World Wide Web in a safe and respectful way. They will understand the necessary precautions to take, to stay safe and know where to seek help. At school, we participate in Safer Internet Day and continually talk about the importance of being safe online. Children will utilise the Web efficiently to enhance their learning of all subjects. The school will provide a rich bank of curriculum-based resources for children and parents to access at home.

At Bridge & Patrixbourne CEP School, we have adopted and adapted the Purple Mash scheme of work to ensure that the school meets the requirements of the National Curriculum. Purplemash is used as a guide to support teachers with their planning and assessment. Our progressive Computing curriculum is taught from EYFS through to year 6, where skills are developed and built upon each year. Computing is incorporated throughout all areas of the curriculum ensuring that our children become digitally literate. Children are able to work with interactive boards, laptops, computers, ipads and beebots, among other things, to further develop their skills. We have our own computer suite so that children have access their own computer during lessons. Teaching computer science ensures our children develop a ’can do’ attitude to problem solving and logical thinking.
