Approaches to Computing

From September 2020, school has implemented the Purple Mash Computing scheme of work. We have taken this approach in order to ensure that the children will receive a progressive and systematic curriculum, which meets all requirements of the national curriculum. It also provides support for staff so that they are able to deliver all aspects of the scheme of work in a confident and skilled manner.

In order to ensure that we demonstrate a consistent understanding of what age-related expectations looks like in Years 3, 4 and 5 as we build up to the end of Key Stage 2 at Year 6, we have highlighted examples of pupils' work focusing on the 'Communicate' programme of study. This programme of study relates to the ability to communicate ideas by using applications and devices throughout the curriculum.
