Computing

The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure all pupils:

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

 

 

From September 2022, we are very excited to be introducing the Teach Computing curriculum. This curriculum will ensure that our children are ready for the significant role that computing will play in their lives. This Summer term, the children from years 1 to 6 are having their first experience of our new curriculum, by trialling Scratch units of work from Teach Computing. We look forward to adding examples of their achievements to our website as they are completed.

Internet Safety

At Stokenchurch we take internet safety very seriously. The children are taught how to stay safe online from the very beginning of their Stokenchurch journey in our Nursery, right through to the end of 

year 6. 

 

We use the document 'Education For A Connected World' to guide our teaching. This covers:

-Self image and identity

-Online relationships

-Online reputation

-Online bullying

-Managing online information

-Health, well-being and lifestyle

-Privacy and security

-Copyright and ownership

 

These important ideas are threaded throughout our curriculum and also taught as stand alone lessons.
