At Ivy Chimneys Primary School our aim is to provide a high-quality computing education that engages and inspires pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand, participate in and change the digital world. The curriculum will teach children key knowledge about how computers and computer systems work and how they are designed and programmed on a variety of devices.
By the time our learners reach Year 6, they will have gained a wide variety of knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum:
• Computer Science (programming and understanding how digital systems work)
• Information Technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information)
• Digital Literacy and E-Safety (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully).
