Computing Statement of intent:
Every child should have the right to access technology to enable them to participate effectively and safely in this ever evolving digital world. In a technology driven society that is constantly growing, we want to equip children from all backgrounds to be able to compete in a future career of their choice; regardless of whether they are able to access this technology at home. Children at The Echelford Primary school will be given varied computing learning experiences which will include all the different aspects of the computing curriculum. These will enable them to use computational thinking to understand how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. At Echelford, we believe that computing is essential and should be woven in to be an integral part of the curriculum as a whole. By allowing children to continually practise their skills and improve their understanding we seek to ensure they become digitally literate.
