During their time at Hackleton CEVA Primary school, all pupils will be taught the knowledge and skills they need to flourish and stay safe in a digital world. They are taught to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly. They recognise acceptable and unacceptable online behaviour and learn to identify a range of ways in which they can report concerns about content or contact.

We want children to become autonomous, independent users of computing technologies, gaining confidence and enjoyment from their activities. We want the use of technology to support learning across the entire curriculum and to ensure that our curriculum is accessible to every child.  Not only do we want them to be digitally literate and competent end-users of technology but through our computing lessons we want them to develop creativity, resilience and problem-solving and critical thinking skills. This is achieved using the Purple Mash scheme of work for computing and optimising the use of other ICT resources across the curriculum when their performance supersedes conventional methods. Links are made across other subject areas. Knowledge and skills are revisited and built upon as a pupil journeys through the school enabling them to question, think critically and develop perspective and judgement.

The objectives for computing in KS1 and KS2 are clearly set out in the National Curriculum which can be found by clicking the link below.
