Computing

Ambition

Our computing curriculum provides pupils with a high-quality computing education that equips them with the skills and knowledge in computational thinking, and the creativity to understand and cope with the technological changing world. We take online safety very seriously and our curriculum equips our pupils with the skills needed to stay safe online and support them in the digital world.

Implementation

The computing curriculum at Pineham Barns is designed to develop children’s knowledge, understanding and application of computing skills.  A breadth of different skills and topics are covered through Digital Literacy, Information Technology and Computer Science to explore key strategies and methods, developing vital computing skills. Through the use of different gadgets, application and online resources, our curriculum ensures pupils learn the skills needed to use the web and technology safely, building on previous knowledge and understanding.

Impact

It is essential that online safety and computing skills are taught consistently and regularly so that our pupils have the confidence, knowledge and skills to deal with different situations. Through an up to date curriculum and repetition of key concepts, children build breadth of knowledge and understanding of computing and safety so they are able to leave Pineham Barns as competent IT users. They are successfully able to interact with the world around them, and draw upon the many benefits that IT can bring to our every day and working lives for the future.

Online Safety

At Pineham Barns Primary School we have an Online Safety Curriculum with a termly theme to keep our children safe online and to support them in a digital world.

The themes of our curriculum are:

Each theme is taught in dedicated online safety sessions in each year group, through an annual online safety week and during assemblies that focus on online safety.

At Pineham Barns we take online safety very seriously. Our pupils follow an acceptable use policy, which ensure that our pupils use ICT equipment appropriately.

As a School we use Online Safety Logos, each logo represents one of our Online Safety Rules: Safe, Pop, Tell, Ask, Accept.
