Through our computing curriculum at West Earlham Junior School we aim to equip our students with the skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way. We want our students to become independent users of technology, who are able to participate in a rapidly changing digital world. Our intention is to enable students to develop computational thinking to solve problems, exchange and present information and analyse and explore a variety of programs and networks.

We will do this through:

  • Understanding and applying the essential principles and concepts of Computer Science, including logic, algorithms and data representation,
  • Using both iPads and laptops in order to access a range of apps and software,
  • Teaching discrete computing lessons to focus on the skills of information technology and digital literacy
  • Tracking progress through the curriculum using formative and summative assessment,
  • Using a variety of programs including: Google Classroom, Google Drive Scratch and J2data to complete tasks and record work.

By the end of Key Stage Two we want our students to;

  • Be critical when using research online,
  • Be able to navigate the internet safely,
  • Create code effectively to suit different purposes,
  • Be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology,
  • To solve increasingly complex problems using computational thinking.
