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. As well as, ensuring learners are using technology safely and understand the importance of being safe online.
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 plans 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.
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.
We also have Digital Leaders within each year group and across the school. 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 promote the use of all things digital throughout school.
