Computing

At Cubitt Town we aim to provide a relevant, challenging and enjoyable computing curriculum for all pupils. Computing is not delivered as a single, discrete subject, but is embedded across the entire curriculum. Skills are taught as part of literacy, numeracy and topic lessons, allowing children to use computing as tool to enhance their learning across the curriculum. Clear objectives are planned in line with the National Curriculum and allow for clear progression across the year groups.

Children will learn to understand and apply the basic principles of computer science - including logic, algorithms, data representation, and communication - using a wide range of technology. The children will also learn how to use computing technology effectively, responsibly and safely.

Regular formative assessment takes place during the children’s learning and this is recorded against the key skills set out in the national curriculum for computing.
