Computing Curriculum Vision

At St Andrew’s Methodist Primary School, we believe that every child should have the right to a curriculum that champions excellence; supporting pupils in achieving to the very best of their abilities. We understand the immense value technology plays not only in supporting the computing and whole school curriculum but overall in the day-to-day life of our school. We believe that technology can provide: enhanced collaborative learning opportunities; better engagement of pupils; easier access to rich content; support conceptual understanding of new concepts and can support the needs of all our pupils. We strive to provide safe opportunities in all subjects to motivate and inspire pupils and raise standards across the curriculum. Everyone in our school community will become lifelong learners equipped to meet developing technology with confidence, enthusiasm and the skills that will prepare them for a future in digitally driven world. We aim to promote the Methodist values throughout the teaching of computing by ensuring all children understand how to use computing in school and in their daily lives with respect and dignity for themselves and for others.

Our computing curriculum also encompasses the aims of ‘Education for a Connected World’ framework. The framework aims to support and broaden the provision of online safety education, so that it is empowering, builds resilience and effects positive culture change. The objectives promote the development of safe and appropriate long-term behaviours, and support educators in shaping the culture within their setting and beyond. Objectives are met through the delivery of our computing curriculum as well as supported through the teaching of RHE.
