"A high quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world."
Computing programme of study, Department of Education
Here at St Rose, to fulfil all of these objects and to achieve the aims of The National Curriculum, we use the planning scheme from BGFL/ Launchpad 365.
We feel this planning scheme allows us to deliver the rich and broad Computing curriculum the children need and equips them with the technological skills needed for later life. Within this scheme are included the three main aspects of the computing curriculum ; computer science (CS), information technology (IT) and digital literacy (DL). We also feel this planning format and coverage allows the children to partake in exciting, fun and engaging Computing topics which hold their attention and help them to achieve the most learning and understanding.
The aims of our Computing Curriculum are to equip the future generations with the necessary skills for adult life and employment within the ever-changing technological environment we live in. To fulfil all of these objects and to achieve the aims of The National Curriculum we are using the brand new planning scheme from BGFL and Entrust for 2021-2022. We feel this planning scheme allows us to deliver the rich and broad Computing curriculum the children need and equips them with the technological skills needed for later life. All of the strands included in the new planning also link and are taken straight from the National Curriculum objectives and there are even knowledge organisers to study and support for each topic too. You can find these on the main Computing page under the specific Year Groups. You can download and print of the knowledge organisers for your year group to study at home. Please see a copy of our new Our Whole School Computing Whole School Plan below. Here you can see when each year group covers their objectives and their Computing topic or focus for the half term. We are so excited to get teaching using our brand new Entrust Planning and Scheme of Work for Computing across the school!
