Computing

This page is a work in progress 

The 2014 National Curriculum states that by the time children leave primary school they should be able to:

 

KS1

  • understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions
  • create and debug simple programs
  • use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs
  • use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content
  • recognise common uses of information technology beyond school
  • use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.

KS2

 

  • design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
  •  use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
  •  use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs
  •  understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the world wide web; and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration
  •  use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content
  •  select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information
  •  use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.

 

If you have any concerns about anything on this website, any other websites you or your family and friends visit, or anyone that contacts you through a website, please click on this button to register your concern. You can speak to anyone in the school with your concerns. In particular Mrs Green is responsible for online safety.
