Computing Curriculum Statement

Computing Curriculum Overview

 

COMPUTING AND INFORMATION COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY

Our computing curriculum is designed to equip students with the essential digital skills needed for success in today's technology-driven society.

With access to laptops and iPads, students engage in hands-on learning experiences that empower them to explore, create, and problem-solve using a variety of digital tools and platforms. From coding interactive games to designing multimedia presentations, our curriculum offers diverse opportunities for students to express their ideas and develop their computational thinking skills.

At St Joseph’s, we prioritise online safety. We are always looking for opportunities to teach children how to be safe online, and use ProjectEvolve resources to deliver comprehensive online safety education. Through ProjectEvolve's online safety resources, students learn how to navigate the digital world responsibly, critically evaluate online content, and protect themselves and others from potential online risks.

Our computing curriculum is inspired by the resources provided by teachcomputing.org. Beginning in Year 1 and progressing through to Year 6, children explore programming languages, learn to design and develop digital solutions, and deepen their understanding of computational thinking. With clear progression pathways and engaging learning experiences, our curriculum prepares students to become confident users and creators of technology, ready to thrive in an ever-evolving digital landscape.
