In the Woodland Federation, we want our children to be confident and competent users of technology. Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal role in our children’s lives, therefore we want to teach our children to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. We want our children to be creative in their use of technology and our computing curriculum which encompasses computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this.
We understand how important it is that our children understand how to keep themselves save online and teach e-safety as part of our computing curriculum
Computing is taught using Teach Computing https://teachcomputing.org/ and online resources. The curriculum has been designed to be taught in mixed age classes. Our scheme of work is bespoke to our federation and addresses all the requirements of the National Curriculum ensuring they cover computer science, information technology and digital literacy.
Computing is assessed using our assessment grids which are completed on a regular basis to help teachers to plan to meet the needs of the children.
We aim for children to be working at the expected level for their age. We also want our children to say that they enjoy their computing lessons and for them to see that the learning from these lessons can be applied in all other subjects.
