What is the intent of Computing?
At Cranfield Church of England Academy, we believe that in offering a high quality Computing curriculum, we are able to inspire and equip our pupils with the skills to become digitally literate members of society who recognise how to stay safe in an ever changing world.
How is computing implemented in our school?
Computing is taught as an intrinsic part of the EYFS Curriculum and the Creative Curriculum in Years One to Four. Children cover the objectives outlined in the Cranfield Curriculum and have access to a wide range of technology including desktop computers, laptops, tablets, beebots and cameras. In the Early Years Foundation Stage, technology activities form part of continuous provision and directed activities. In Years One to Four, teachers deliver computing teaching as part of a Creative Curriculum's unit of learning - this ensures that core skills are taught, but applied in creative and engaging contexts.Curriculum progression maps ensure children develop skills over a period of time in a logical and progressive sequence. Computing skills and knowledge are assessed each term against the Cranfield Curriculum objectives.
