Why do we teach this? Why do we teach it in the way we do?

Through teaching Computing we intend to equip our children to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. Computing encompasses a whole range of interconnected disciplines required to help understand and change the world. We want all pupils at Spire to experience the magnificence, power and enjoyment of Computing and to develop a sense of inquisitiveness about the subject. We acknowledge the importance of these skills being coupled with a clear understanding of digital literacy. We take a Mastery approach to ensure that our pupils acquire a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of what they have been taught.

We aim for all pupils to:

  • Become confident to find, explore, use and apply fundamental principles and concepts of computer sciences including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • Be able to confidently analyse and apply problem solving skills through engaging with relevant and enriching computer programs.
  • Be able to evaluate new or unfamiliar information technology to solve problems and confidently appraise if it is fit for purpose. Linking computing to real-life scenarios to equip children with diagnostic skills is what we strive to achieve.
  • Become responsible, competent and respectful users of information and communication technology.

At Tuel Lane, our aim is to implement this INTENT through quality first Teaching & Learning.
