Curriculum Intent: 

Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in pupil’s lives. Therefore, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. We want our pupils to understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a school, we utilise technology to model positive use. Our pupils will develop their love of practical computing by collaboratively, planning, analysing and solving a range of computational problems. We develop pupils to be able to work independently and confidently in a range of areas within the Computing curriculum.   

The Computing curriculum allows pupils to develop their love of practical computing by giving them opportunities to use different pieces of industry used software to enhance their digital skills thus enabling them to be more successful and enhance future career prospects.   

The Computing curriculum builds on the foundations of knowledge learnt in Key Stage Two. We have designed an ambitious and robust curriculum that ensure pupils have solid base for learning by the end of Year 7. For example, pupils develop their understanding of three programming concepts as well as their computational thinking skills and the ability to apply this knowledge to programming languages. This is then used as a platform to expand the pupil’s knowledge, understanding and skills as they progress through Key Stage Three and Four. 

We believe that Computing underpins all areas of future life skills and the wider curriculum. We ensure all pupils receive the same academic diet for curriculum content delivered using different strategies such as modelling and scaffolding, so all pupils can access lesson content and in turn make progress.  We use a variety of adaptive teaching methods to engage students and to set high standards, so pupils have high aspirations and take pride in their contributions to lessons. The curriculum has been developed to ensure it is accessible to all pupils and can be adapted to allow pupils to thrive regardless of their starting point. 

Within the Computing department, we offer a range of extracurricular trip to places such as London and Disneyland Paris, so pupils can see how what they learn in class and how they use technology is used within industry. We also used carefully designed scenarios that are linked within our local area, enhancing pupils, especially who are new to country, their experiences of Liverpool. We expose pupils to real world events, within the field of Computing so that have a wider understanding of the impacts of technology and it’s uses in society.
