Computing Curriculum Aim

At Forest Park Primary School, we understand that our pupils have a variety and range of digital experiences already through everyday life. The Computing curriculum aims 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.

During their time at Forest Park Primary School, children will gain key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work), information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information) and digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully). The objectives within each strand support the development of learning across the key stages, ensuring a solid grounding for future learning and beyond including the development of computational thinking.

We also firmly believe the importance of delivering a high-quality online safety curriculum, alongside the core values of these three stands. Online safety is embedded throughout the computing curriculum and supports and consolidates the strong presence of online safety within our PSHE curriculum.
