Coronavirus Plans and Updates

'Learn, Grow and Achieve Together Through God's Love'

  We have set up a 'Home Learning' page under the 'Key Information' tab.  This will provide more information for you about how to access a quality education  for your children at home.  Please remember to check your child's class page under the 'Children' tab for regular updates from your classteacher.  Please collect a paper pack if you cannot access technology.  If you would like more information please phone the DFE coronavirus helpline 0800 046 8687 or visit the full government guidance at:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19/guidance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19

Thank you for your tremendous support and understanding in this matter, if anything positive can come out of this then it is the wonderful community spirit and offers of help that have been overwhelming.

What is Computing?

 Computing is divided into 3 areas: Computer Science, Information Technology and Digital Literacy (which includes

E-Safety).  The aims for the computing curriculum have been divided between the 3 areas. (see the table below)

 

Area

Key Stage 1 Aims

Key Stage 2 Aims

Computer Science (CS)

1. Understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions

 

2. Create and debug simple programs

 

3. Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs

 

4. Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts

 

5. Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output

 

6. Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs

 

7. Understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the World Wide Web

 

8. Appreciate how [search] results are selected and ranked

 

Information Technology (IT)

1. Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content

 

2. Use search technologies effectively

 

3. Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information

 

Digital Literacy (DL)

1. Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school

 

2. Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies

 

3. Understand the opportunities [networks] offer for communication and collaboration

 

4. Be discerning in evaluating digital content

 

5. Use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact

 

What the National Curriculum requires in computing at KS1 and KS2

 

Pupils should be taught to:

•Understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions
•Create and debug simple programs
•Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs
•Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content
•Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school
•Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
