The intent of the Computing curriculum at Barrington is to provide children with an engaging, inclusive and rigorous curriculum that addresses the challenges and opportunities offered in our ever-changing, technology-driven world.
The knowledge and skills that the children gain will help them make sense of and contribute to the society they will live in as adults.
From when they start in Reception, children are taught to use computational thinking to explore technology as well as other areas of the curriculum. As they move through the school, they develop their knowledge in Computer Science, Digital Literacy, E-Safety and Information Technology. By the time children reach year 6, they should confidently understand the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. As they enter secondary school, we want every child to be digitally literate; able to use information and communication technology to express themselves and develop their ideas.
As well as this, we aim to provide children with the knowledge and understanding of how to keep themselves safe on the internet, and how to be responsible and respectful internet users.
