“A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world”
The document that can be accessed below sets out Tudor Primary’s approach to the content and organisation of Computing in accordance with National Curriculum and the school’s thematic approach.
At Tudor Primary School, we understand the key role that computing and technology plays for our pupils. Children are constantly exposed to computers throughout their daily lives in all different forms, such as tablets, phones, laptops and many others. This makes it vital that they have a solid understanding of how they work and are able to access all of the opportunities they provide.
“Computing ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.” - DfE
In line with the National Curriculum, we aim to ensure that all pupils:
- can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
- can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
- can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
- are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
