Our vision at Heymann Primary and Nursery School is to give children access to high quality devices, for children to select technology for a particular purpose that they can develop, create and communicate their ideas effectively and for children to learn and evaluate their computing skills, applying these across the curriculum.
Through identifying four key values that drive our whole school curriculum (Curriculum Drivers of Diversity, Emotional Intelligence, Creative Thinking and Community), we have designed our computing curriculum to provide opportunities for our children to develop these values, especially creative thinking, so that they can develop the skills they will need in an ever-changing world.
Our computing curriculum is built from the National Curriculum for computing and builds knowledge and skills from the start of the children’s time in school, nursery, to the end of year 6. This leads to children achieving age related expectations by the end of each milestone as well as developing pupils to becoming digitally literate through Applied Computing. Skills and knowledge from computing is used across the curriculum for the love of learning.
