Computing Curriculum Intent
Through our computing curriculum at Coppull Parish Church School we aim to give our pupils the life skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way in order to operate in the 21st century workplace; We want them to know the career opportunities that will be open to them if they study computing. We want our 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 computer science lessons we want them to develop creativity, resilience and problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
Underpinned by the following Coppull Parish curriculum drivers:
Developing speech & language
Subject specialist vocabulary is taught and built up, supporting pupils as they progress through their education in computing. Collaborative working in computing promotes discussion and helps to develop speech and language.
To recognise themselves as members of a wider global community.
Children are taught to be responsible users of technology (for example to regulate their screen time)
Mental Health and Wellbeing
Pupils learn about online safety and how they conduct themselves online and how to recognise and protect themselves from online bullying.
