Computing Curriculum Statement
At Glenmead, we realise that our pupils are growing up in an increasingly technological world. The ability to use and understand all aspects of Computing is an essential life skill. It is our aim to equip our pupils with the skills, knowledge and understanding required to use technology appropriately and safely both in and beyond Glenmead. As technology is everywhere and will play a
pivotal part in students' lives, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsively
The core of our Computing curriculum is the National Curriculum and having researched new schemes, we have made the decision that Teach Computing suited the needs of our pupils best. This scheme ensures that Computing is well structured and can be interlinked with all subjects. Lessons follow a clear sequence with sound progression of skills, knowledge and understanding, which are revisited accordingly to ensure consolidation.
Units are practical, engaging and allow computing lessons to be hands on, enabling pupils to harness their skills, knowledge and understanding across a range of contexts. Units cover a broad range of computing components such as coding, spreadsheets, Internet and Email, databases, communication networks, touch-typing, animation and online safety, so pupils have the opportunity to experience a wide range of programs.
