Computing

We use a scheme of work, which has been created by the Herts for Learning Computing Curriculum Team to support the teaching of computing, including computer science; information technology; digital literacy and the safe and appropriate use of technology. Online-Safety is not taught as a discrete element; rather, the safe, appropriate and responsible use of technology is embedded throughout the scheme as it is believed that this drip-feed approach is highly effective.

To ensure progression across the primary phase, the scheme is organised into four age phases; EYFS, Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2, supporting mixed aged cohorts.  The content is divided into five strands, and is taught on a rolling programme over 2 years which provides coverage and balance throughout the primary phase: Create, Digital Research, Info…Info…, Digital Communication and e-Worlds.
