At Perton First School, we recognise that pupils are entitled to a broad and balanced computing education with a structured, progressive approach to the learning of how computer systems work, the use of IT and the skills necessary to become digitally literate and participate fully in the modern world.
At Perton First School, we have adopted the Entrust computing scheme of work for 2021-22. We want to ensure that our children leave our school with the necessary skills and knowledge to continue their learning journey in Computing. Each class has an allocated weekly computing slot in our ICT suite to deliver the computing curriculum.
We deliver computing to each year group in six units across the academic year. These units have been planned to ensure that knowledge and skills can be progressively built upon year on year.
‘Online Safety’ forms an vital part of the computing curriculum at Perton First School and in every half term, each class will receive an online safety lesson. Online safety is not restricted to the computing curriculum. It also features in our PSHE curriculum and teachers also seek out opportunities during the school day to discuss online safety.
We measure the impact of the Computing Curriculum through pupil discussions, learning walks, sampling of children's work and by monitoring the attainment levels of our children using our own assessment tracking system.
