- Children will have subject specific knowledge across computer science, information technology and digital literacy to enable them to understand computing concepts.
- Children will become creative problem solvers within computing, finding solutions to code, manipulating digital media and be effective users of the national and global internet community.
- Children champion the skills necessary to be creative when using computers.
At All Saints' teachers carefully plan their units of work, supported by Purple Mash to engage children and excite them about technology. Purple Mash allows teachers to use dedicated resources to teach computing explicitly but also with a cross-curricular approach allowing children to use familiar resources safely, flexibly and with confidence both in school and at home.
Children are encouraged to persevere and construct creative solutions to problems they are faced with when coding and using digital media in the safety of the Purple Mash tools. Teacher assess pupils each unit and children are encouraged to explore computing across different subjects.
Children throughout our school are outward looking learners with the connectivity computing brings for them. Children are able to share work with their peers safely and respectfully within society. They understand how algorithms work throughout the school and have a creative approach to tinkering, debugging and logical reasoning.
Children are encouraged to do work at home on Purple Mash reinforcing the opportunities presented in school.
Over the year, we get Jam Coding into school to assist with delivering quality afterschool clubs for children to experience computing activities throughout a range of different industries such as animation, robotics and working machines.
