Computing

"Our computers have become windows through which we can gaze upon a world that is virtually without horizons and boundaries" Joseph B Wirthlin

 

At Alumwell, we aim to ensure that all of our children are equipped with the skills they need to reach their goals. With technology playing a significant role in society today, it is our mission to ensure that our children have access to a rich computing curriculum, delivered through the use of a range of devices, to prepare them for the digital world.

 

To achieve this, we have chosen to use the Purple Mash Computing Scheme of Work across all year groups. The scheme of work supports our teachers in delivering fun and engaging lessons, which helps to raise the standards of computing in our school and allows all pupils to achieve to their full potential in all areas of the curriculum.

 

Our curriculum is further strengthened by workshops exploring robotics, Micro:bits and 3D printing.  

 

Computing at Alumwell provides immense flexibility, strong cross-curricular links and integrates perfectly with our wider curriculum. 

 

What is computing? 

 

There are three clear aspects of the Primary Computing Curriculum:

  • Computer Science (CS),
  • Information Technology (IT
  • Digital Literacy (DL)

‚Äč

The core of computing is Computer Science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use Information Technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become Digitally Literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
