Computing

When you learn computing, you’re thinking about thinking.

Computing at Pencombe CE Primary is taught in a creative and inspiring curriculum in line with the new National Curriculum.

Computing skills are taught to the children through Computing lessons using our iPads, Chrome Books Promethean Interactive Whiteboards or Active Panels and other digital devices. Such technology is enabling our pupils to participate in an exciting, contemporary Computing curriculum, as well as allowing teachers to embed the use of technology as a learning tool across the curriculum.

The computing curriculum here at Pencombe CE School is broken down into three main areas.

Computer Science

(Computing, algorithms and programming) – Children learn how digital systems work and use this to create programs

Information Technology

Children are able to use, express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology

Digital Literacy

Children use technology safely and keep themselves safe online (Take a look at how to keep safe online (link here to the Online Safety section of our website)

Following the disapplication of the QCA ICT Curriculum, our school has developed it’s own curriculum. This has been further developed to reflect the New computing Curriculum 2014. Our Computing Skills Ladder is based on the CAS Computing in Schools documentation and Herefordshire Computing Progression. Where possible we find creative cross-curricular links and embed the Computing skills ladder within our main topics.
