Computing Subject Statement
Wider Curriculum Leader: Mrs K Tilley
Subject Leader: Mrs A Quilt
NWPA curriculum Intent:
Our curriculum at North Walsall Primary Academy is designed to deliver a broad and balanced education to all of our leaners so that they are confident and able to lead successful lives. We work hard to ensure our students understand how their learning links to the wider world and receive opportunities to broaden their cultural capital so they become responsible citizens within their communities and make positive contributions.
Our aim for computing at North Walsall is to provide a high-quality education which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand the world. We aim to teach children key knowledge about how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. By the time they leave North Walsall, our children will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three areas of the computing curriculum: computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work), information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information) and digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully). Our computing curriculum is currently being developed to include more opportunities for ‘unplugged’ activities as well as wider coverage for online safety.
