Computing

Vision

At Marton Manor Primary School, 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.

Intent

  • Provide an exciting, rich, relevant and challenging Computing curriculum for all pupils.
  • Teach pupils to become responsible, respectful and competent users of data, information and communication technology.
  • Provide technology solutions for forging better home and school links.
  • Enthuse and equip children with the capability to use technology throughout their lives.
  • Teach pupils to understand the importance of governance and legislation regarding how information is used, stored, created, retrieved, shared and manipulated.
  • Utilise computational thinking beyond the Computing curriculum.
  • Give children access to a variety of hardware, software and unplugged resources.
  • Equip pupils with skills, strategies and knowledge that will enable them to reap the benefits of the online world, whilst being able to minimise risk to themselves or others.

Implementation

We follow the Purple Mash scheme of work. Resources for the scheme of work are online. This scheme of work is currently under review to meet the individual needs of the children and include more specific goals for Foundation Stage. Each lesson can be modified, ensuring hardware, software and e-safety implications are considered as well as ensuring the objective is tailored to be accessible and to stretch their more able students. Children in Foundation stage and Key Stage 1 begin by using programmable robots and developing simple algorithms for everyday familiar processes. As they develop their understanding, children become more familiar with complex code and will begin to create their own programs. They increase their understanding of logical reasoning and can understand why some algorithms will not work.

Impact

Key Stage 1

Understand what algorithms are, how they are implemented as programs on digital devices, and that programs execute by following a sequence of instructions. Write and test simple programs. Organise, store, manipulate and retrieve data in a range of digital formats. Communicate safely and respectfully online, keeping personal information private, and recognise common uses of information technology beyond school.

Key Stage 2 

Design and write programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts. Describe how Internet search engines find and store data; use search engines effectively; be discerning in evaluating digital content; respect individuals and intellectual property; use technology responsibly, securely and safely. Use sequence, selection and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output; generate appropriate inputs and predicted outputs to test programs. Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information. Use logical reasoning to explain how a simple algorithm works and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs. Understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the worldwide web; and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration.
