Computing

Computing at Hanbury's Farm School

At Hanbury’s Farm and Oakhill Primary School Federation, we strive to prepare our children for a future in an environment which is shaped by technology.

The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology

The provision we offer and the opportunities given equip the pupils with computational thinking and creativity in order to understand the principles of information and computation and how digital systems work alongside programming.

 

Online Safety:

As well as discussing the benefits of computer technology, we are also aware of the risks and in order to prepare our children to stay safe, the teaching of online safety is included in our computing curriculum. We also celebrate Safer Internet day every year as a whole school. Next year Safer Internet Day is on the 7th  of February with the theme being 'Want to talk about it?'

The above National Curriculum statements are met through the implementation of the Entrust Education technologies Computing Scheme of Work.

Alongside this, we deliver Digital literacy though specific lessons aligned to the Education for a connected world through the Project Evolve Toolkit.  This provision ensures they become digitally literate so that they can 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.
