Computing Curriculum Intent

Computing Curriculum Intent

To expand access to, and experience of, a range of technologies in order to develop computational thinking and equip our children for the jobs of the future.

At Kentmere Academy and Nursery we are proud to have been recognised for our achievements in ICT; currently holding the NAACE ICT Mark and E-Safety 360 Award.

The school has a very collaborative approach to ICT which is clearly led and is integral to the school vision for teaching, learning and management. (NAACE, ICT Mark, June 2018).

Introduction to Computing

Introduction to Computing

At Kentmere, we teach Computing through a range of different technologies so we can develop problem-solving and computational thinking. We are very fortunate to have many laptops, iPads and software to ensure our children are provided an engaging and enticing curriculum. Computing is taught discretely to meet the National Curriculum requirements however it is also intertwined with the half termly topics to provide additional opportunities for development. We consistently teach the importance of Internet Safety by following the SMART rules.
