Computing

Computing at Portway

 

At Portway Infant School we aim to provide a high-quality computing education that effectively enables pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programmes, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils can become digitally literate. This requires them to be able to use, express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology at a suitable level for future workplace.  

Our curriculum

 

Through our curriculum, our intention is for children to;

  • Understand what algorithms are, how they are implemented as programs on digital devices and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions
  • Create and de-bug simple programs
  • Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs
  • Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content
  • Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school
  • Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private, identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies
