Learning Together For All To Succeed



Curriculum Intent:


St Faith’s believes that every child has the right to a computing curriculum that champions excellence and supports pupils in achieving to the very best of their abilities. We understand the immense value technology plays not only in supporting the computing and whole school curriculum but overall, in the day-to-day life of our school. 


The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate (able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology) at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.


The St Faith’s curriculum for Computing aims to:


  • Equip pupils to use computational thinking and creativity that will enable them to become active participants in the digital world.
  • Experience an exciting, rich, relevant and challenging computing curriculum
  • Learn to become responsible, respectful and competent users of data, information and communication technology
  • Benefit from technology solutions for forging better home and school links
  • Be enthused and equipped with the capability to use technology throughout their


  • Understand the importance of governance and legislation regarding how information is used, stored, created, retrieved, shared and manipulated
  • Utilise computational thinking beyond the computing curriculum;
  • Have access to a variety of high-quality hardware, software and unplugged resources
  • Be equipped with skills, strategies and knowledge that will enable them to reap the benefits of the online world, whilst being able to minimise risk to themselves or others
  • Use technology imaginatively and creatively to be inspired and engaged across other curriculum subjects
  • Develop children as respectful, responsible and confident users of technology, aware of measures that can be taken to keep themselves and others safe online


Curriculum Implementation:


Our Computing curriculum is taught: 


  • Using the ‘Teach Computing’ Scheme of work Curriculum.  This scheme was chosen as it has been created by subject experts and based on the latest pedagogical research. It provides an innovative progression framework where computing content (concepts, knowledge, skills and objectives) has been organised into interconnected networks called learning graphs.
  • Through engaging lessons which aims to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to thrive in the digital world of today and the future (broken down into 3 strands: computer science, information technology and digital literacy)
  • Through key vocabulary
