Farnham Green Primary has adopted a planning framework for computing from the Redbridge Network Learning Community (RNLC) which has updated our programme of study in line with the National Curriculum. It excites pupils and develops their creative skills.
Lessons are taught in our modern computing suite as well as on laptops and iPads in classrooms.
The computing curriculum includes a clearly articulated strand of computer science (including programming) as the underlying subject discipline, alongside the use and application of digital technology. These changes represent a qualitative shift in the subject, not an incremental change. The new national curriculum for computing has been developed to equip young people with the foundational skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. Through the new programme of study for computing, they will learn how computers and computer systems work, they will design and build programmes, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content. The three aspects of the computing curriculum are computer science (CS), information technology (IT) and digital literacy (DL).
These exciting changes see pupils, staff and parents forging links with coding, e-safety, gaming and enterprise skills. Together, we at Farnham Green Primary School will prepare pupils to cope with the digital world of the future and its changing complexities.
