Computing

‘Alan Turing gave us a mathematical model of digital computing that has completely withstood the test of time. He gave us a very, very clear description that was truly prophetic.’ George Dyson
Curriculum Intent
Through the delivery of our curriculum, we want our children to be ready for life beyond St John's Church of England Academy.
 
We aspire for them to be:
Articulate
Aspirational
Curious
Appreciative
Subject Intent
At St John’s Church of England Academy we understand that a high-quality computing education is essential for pupils to understand computing technologies, and for them to use these skills to become responsible, competent, confident and creative participants of an increasingly digital world.

As a school, we will deliver the requirements of the KS1 and KS2 computing programmes of study, and  ensure that our pupils have the digital skills they need to prepare them for life today.

By teaching Computing we aim:
  • to inspire pupils to continue to learn and apply the skills they learn at secondary school, university, and beyond in the workplace.       
As a computer user we want our children...
To be able to connect with others safely and respectfully.
To develop their ability in communicating ideas by using applications and devices throughout the curriculum.
To collect, organise and manipulate data effectively.
To develop competence in coding for a variety of practical and inventive purposes.
Impact

The impact and measure of our computing curriculum is to ensure that children at St John’s Church of England Academy are equipped with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to be ready for the curriculum at Key Stage 3 and for life as an adult in the wider world.
