Computing

Subject Intent

Computing at Woodfield Primary School will ensure that by the time children leave at the end of KS2, they will be able to safely and responsibly work with a range of digital technology-based software and hardware to see the impact that technology has on our lives and the wider society. Our children take part in learning with safe, real-life application processes so that they understand the digital systems that ease our lives, expressing their digital literacy using ICT.

E-safety is a principal theme that is embedded throughout our curriculum as the children become increasingly aware of their interactions with technology and the wider world. Ultimately, the children of Woodfield Primary School will leave KS2 with knowledge of how to be safe members of the digital world beyond our school with confidence.

Implementation

At Woodfield, Computing is planned collaboratively between cohort classes in-line with the National Curriculum 2014 objectives and the Computing Progression Document. All lessons are underpinned by Woodfield’s pedagogy outlined on the Curriculum Map. The Rose Learning Trust’s approach to E-Safety is delivered through Gooseberry Planet, which supports learning about online safety in a unique way, by joining the student, teacher and parent together through an online game (App) and the concept of gamification, as part of structured learning programme.
