Computing

Computing Intent

At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School we provide a computing curriculum designed to equip our pupils for an ever changing technological world. We provide opportunities to develop children’s ability to think critically and creatively as well as developing their computational thinking. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. These links are fostered through cross curricular learning as well as enrichment activities.

We want our pupils to have a breadth of experience to develop their understanding of themselves as individuals within their community but also as members of a wider global community and as responsible digital citizens. Through specific teaching as well as our whole school ethos we aim to give our pupils the life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way in order to flourish in the 21st Century work place. We want our pupils to have a breadth of experience to develop their understanding of themselves as individuals within their community but also as members of a wider global community and as responsible digital citizens.

Through the teaching of our computing curriculum, we aspire to achieve ‘challenge for all’; as pupils progress through each carefully sequenced unit of work, they build their skills and the work they do becomes more complex. This demands resilience. Central to our approach in computing is to teach pupils to avoid ‘learnt helplessness’. Finding and fixing errors is a key part of our computing curriculum. We endeavour to avoid saying: “It doesn’t work!” Instead we encourage the children to debug and problem solve!
