Computing

Welcome to the HCPS

Here at Huntington Community Primary School, our vision is to embed Computing into as many learning opportunities across the school as possible.

Our overall aim is to have a progressive Computing curriculum in place that is informed by the latest pedagogy and research, which links effectively to support and reinforce learning in a range of other subjects. 

The Computing curriculum has three main strands:

Digital Literacy

Equipping our pupils with the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to participate fully in our increasingly digital world.

ICT

Exposing our pupils to the purposeful use of existing programs to develop products and solutions.

Computer Science

Providing our pupils with opportunities to explore how computing systems work and how they are designed and programmed.

 

Computing is taught weekly in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. We teach the Primary National Curriculum objectives through a scheme of work called Teach Computing (developed by the National Centre for Computing Education). The scheme is high quality, engaging and ensures clear progression over time. We also make use of the Project Evolve resources to deliver excellent Internet Safety lessons to our pupils.

At Huntington Community Primary School, children have access to high quality technology and equipment throughout the school year so that they can tinker and develop their skills right from Nursery. Computing skills are taught both discreetly and cross-curricularly, supporting other areas of learning. As well as a weekly slot in our ICT Suite, each class has a set of Learn Pads and access to Chromebooks. We also use Google Classroom within our lessons and to provide homework to our pupils.

 

Further to this, we embed Computational Thinking throughout our Computing curriculum. This involves looking at problems or systems in a way that considers how computers could be used to help to solve or model these.
