Computing at Stockton Heath Primary School

Bryan Scott

Subject Leader: MR SCOTT

All pupils at Stockton Heath Primary School have the right to rich, deep learning experiences that balance all the aspects of computing. With technology playing such a significant role in society today, we believe that ‘Computational thinking’ is a skill children must be taught if they are to be able to participate effectively and safely in this digital world. A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. At Stockton Heath Primary School, the core of computing is Computer Science in which pupils are introduced to a range of technology, including iPads and Chromebooks, allowing them to continually practise and improve the skills they learn. Beginning with learning to identify different types of technology around us in Early Years, students will then be guided through the process of writing and executing simple programs before progressing on to understanding networked systems and designing and debugging programs to accomplish specific goals. This ensures they become digitally literate so that they are able to express themselves and develop their ideas through information and computer technology–at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

We teach a curriculum that enables children to become effective users of technology who can:

  1. Understand and apply the essential principles and concepts of computer science, including logic, algorithms and data representation;
  2. Analyse problems in computational term, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems;
  3. Evaluate and apply information technology analytically to solve problems;
  4. Communicate ideas well by utilising appliances and devices throughout all areas of the curriculum.

Progression in Computing

Progression in computing is measured against the four core strands of the computing curriculum. Below are the roadmaps for EYFS - Y6.
