At Grange Park Junior School the core of our computing curriculum is computer science. Pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Our scheme of work builds on this knowledge equipping pupils to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
For further detail, please see the curriculum overview section.
Pupils are timetabled for one computing lesson in our computer suite each week. Activities are planned to ensure that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology.
To further support our pupils' learning, we have recently purchased a set of ipads which will further help take computing directly into each of our classrooms with children developing their use of digital media to present their work across the curriculum.
