About our school

Computing

At Lealholm, Castleton and Glaisdale, we understand the importance of ensuring children gain a rich knowledge of computer literacy to prepare them for 21st Century Britain.

Intent 

Curriculum design, coverage and appropriateness 

At Lealholm, Castleton and Glaisdale, our intent is to equip children for our ever-developing  technological world and to ensure our children behave responsibly online.  We understand the importance of ensuring children gain a rich knowledge of computer literacy to prepare them for 21st Century Britain. Alongside this, we ensure children have the understanding they need to know how to stay safe online and determine authenticity of source material.  Computing is woven throughout our curriculum and is an integral part of all learning.   

 Our intent is for children to:  

  • Achieve their absolute potential by having the highest expectations of their learning  
  • Be confident in the use of a range of technology and to understand its place in today’s world  
  • Be confident to ask questions and extend their knowledge. 
  • Use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour and identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.   

Implementation 

Curriculum delivery 

Teaching (pedagogy) 

Assessment (formative and summative)  

We implement our Computing curriculum through:  

This is achieved by a bespoke computing curriculum based around a two-year rolling programme. Children get the opportunity to have discrete computing lessons which is then reinforced and enhanced across the curriculum. They are fortunate enough to have access to a range of technology to ensure breadth of knowledge and understanding.  

  • A creative and innovative approach using a range of high quality ICT resources    
  • Ensuring staff are trained and confident in online safety, identifying and responding to concerns  
  • Teaching children and young people the skills to stay safe online using advised guidance and through nurture and relationships, mutual respect and trust 
  • Sharing helpful advice and resources with parents and carers  
  • Developing robust e-safety policies and procedures 
  • Regularly reviewing and improving our e-safety provision 
  • Logging and monitoring any concerns 

The National Curriculum provides a structure and skill development for the Computing curriculum being taught.  We use Purple Mash to plan and deliver our computing curriculum which reflects a balanced programme of study.  

Impact 

Attainment and progress (including national tests and assessments) 

 

The impact of this is our children understand the importance of staying safe online and what to do if they have any concerns.
