At Stretham Primary, we want all children to be able to thrive as responsible, digital citizens. Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in our children’s lives. Therefore, we want to educate our pupils and model how to use technology positively and safely. We want our children to be excited, inspired and confident using a range of technology. Computing is coherently planned and sequenced as discrete lessons, using resources from the schemes iCompute and Teach Computing as well as accessing various internet safety resources online. Computing is additionally embedded across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible. Key subject-specific vocabulary is built on and developed throughout the pupil’s time in school. We strive to inspire all pupils to fulfil their potential, regardless of background, gender, ethnic origin or additional needs, cultivating a love of computing whilst developing their knowledge, understanding and skills.
The children at Stretham Community Primary school have weekly Computing lessons. We follow a structured sequence of lessons, ensuring that we covered the skills required to meet the aims of the National Curriculum.
The content is divided into four strands, Information Technology, Computer Science, Digital Literacy and Internet Safety. Each unit offers a range of opportunities for consolidation, challenge and variety.
