At Eden Primary, we intend for our learners to become autonomous, independent users of computing technologies, gaining confidence and enjoyment from their activities. It is our intention that the use of technology supports learning across the curriculum and ensures that our curriculum is accessible to every child.

Eden Primary’s Computing curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in digital literacy, computer science, information technology and online safety to ensure that learners become competent in safely using, as well as understanding, technology. These strands are revisited repeatedly through a range of themes and research opportunities during children’s time in school to ensure the learning is embedded and skills are successfully developed. Our intention is that Computing supports and develops children’s creativity, collaboration, and cross curricular learning to engage children and enrich their experiences in school.

At Eden we follow the Purple Mash scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum with some thematic adjustments. The Computing curriculum is structured to be progressive in knowledge and skills across all phases and is closely aligned to the National Curriculum Programmes of Study. Knowledge, skills and vocabulary are sequenced to build on prior learning and the subject is taught through a series of units. Computing knowledge and skills are taught creatively, and children work towards clearly defined end points, creating opportunities to make connections within and across their learning.

Our Computing progression model is broken down into three strands that make up the curriculum:

  • Computer Science
  • Information Technology
  • Digital Literacy

Computer Science underlines the knowledge and skills relating to programming, coding, algorithms and computational thinking. Information Technology underlines the knowledge and skills relating to communication, multimedia and data representation/handling. Digital Literacy underlines the knowledge and skills relating to online safety and technology uses.
