Computing

Intent
At Brooke Primary Academy, we will equip all learners with the experiences and skills of computing that they will use in a rapidly changing technological world. We want learners at Brooke to be confident and independent in their use of computers and technology to solve problems across the curriculum.

Implementation
We will provide a high quality, rich and practical computing curriculum, developed by our computer lead based upon the Purple Mash scheme of work to ensure continuity and progression in the acquisition of subject knowledge and skills. Teachers will use the agreed unit planners as the basis for their day to day planning. Ongoing assessments will be carried out using the National Curriculum and the tailor-made scheme of work along with teacher assessments.

Digital Leaders
We also have Digital Leaders within each class and across the schools. These are children with a passion for technology who want to share their knowledge and skills with others. Digital Leaders will support and help their class teacher and peers in computing sessions. They will also promote the use of all things digital throughout school.

Impact
All children are entitled to the opportunity to develop computing capability through activities that arise in all curriculum areas, although some computing skills will be taught discretely.
Children will use this knowledge throughout their lives.
