At St Hugh’s, Computing is embedded throughout the curriculum. The scheme of work is designed to support our children’s development in computing across all key stages, and provide them with relevant and practical skills that can be used and applied inside and outside of the classroom.
Through a cross curricular approach, children are given opportunities to apply and develop their computing capability in all subjects, by using a range of technological devices.
The national curriculum for computing aims 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.
Keeping our children safe online
We ask that children be aware of their own and other's safety and security when using computers, the Internet and other electronic devices. Children are taught how to keep themselves and their friends safe and happy online, and are encouraged to be responsible with personal information.
All children are asked to adhere to an acceptable use policy before using the Internet in school.
Below is also a Parents' Guide to Online Safety.
