‘To Be The Best You Can Be’
Computing at St Andrew’s
In an ever-changing digital world we aim at St. Andrew’s to prepare our children by giving them the opportunities to gain knowledge and develop skills that will equip them for their future. Within our computing curriculum we aim to provide modern, ambitious and cross-curricular teaching which is designed around the four key areas, as outlined in the National Curriculum. These are computer science, information technology, digital literacy and online safety. The combination of these areas equips our children with the ability to safely and confidently use a computer.
Our children begin their journey with technology in Mulberry being given access to computing all the way up until they reach Oak class. From this early age children will be given the opportunities to use laptops, learn about online safety and learn to code. Our computing curriculum builds on previous learning and provides both support and challenge for learners.
How we learn
At St. Andrew’s we follow a computing scheme, Purple Mash, which ensures progression of skills and covers all aspects of the computing curriculum. We want to ensure that computing is embedded in our whole school curriculum and that opportunities for enhancing learning by using technology are always taken.
