Computing Intent Statement, Skill Progression and Policy

Computing Intent Statement

At Swansfield Park Primary School, our intention is to challenge and inspire children so that they become more than just passive users of technology; instead, we aim to equip them with an active understanding of the digital world around them, how they can engage with, program and control it, and, most importantly of all, how to use it safely.

Through promoting their use of computational thinking, we also aspire to help children develop a range of important skills and attitudes which are valuable throughout their school life and beyond, such as perseverance, problem solving, imagination, collaboration and pattern recognition.

Our computing curriculum is planned as a series of sequential learning steps and our topic-based approach enables these objectives to be taught in a creative, engaging and progressive manner, with regular acquisition and application of computing skills in other subject areas.
