Computing

At The Alderton, our main goal is to ensure the preparation of confident, effective and safe users and creators of technology. We aim to make all learning memorable through the embedded use of current technologies throughout the curriculum in the hopes to inspire all children to excel in computing and tailor our teaching and learning to suit their needs.

 

Curriculum Summary:

 

Key Stage 2

Students develop their knowledge of programming skills. The children begin to create and design algorithms to achieve given goals. Other areas of computing, such as digital literacy and information technologies, are also taught within core and foundation subjects with a continued focus on safe internet use and advancing the use of presentational software.

 

The main outcomes for children are to:

  • programme and develop their instructions on apps such as Hopscotch
  • to learn basic coding language
  • to continue navigating the internet safely
  • to begin to reflect on the tools they use to reach a certain outcome

E-Safety

E-Safeguarding is of the utmost importance to Alderton. As such, we ensure that children have an understanding of how to use information and communication technologies safely and responsibly.

 

E-Safety is taught discreetly and is also embedded across the curriculum.

 

Assessment

Pupils will be assessed termly on their computing subject knowledge.
