Computing at Intack Primary School – Statement of Intent

 

Everyone’s lives are constantly being changed by technology. In these rapidly changing times, we teach computing to equip our children to take part fully in a world where school and home life are continually being transformed by technology.

 

It is our intention to enable children to confidently and responsibly find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information.  Our aim is to ensure that our children leave primary school computer literate; knowing, remembering and understanding more in computing.

 

Being able to use a range of technology safely is a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners. It is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this through both discrete teaching of skills and a cross curricular approach.

 

 

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
