Wootey Infant School Computing Intent

"Our children will become Masters of technology and not slaves to it"


At Wootey Infant School our vision and intent for Computing are based around five key aspects-


  • Pupils will use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.


  • Pupils will know how to be safe.


  • Pupils will be equipped for the future.


  • Pupils will develop critical thinking skills and communication.


  • Pupils have a breadth of IT experiences.


Computing Implementation


The National Curriculum states that pupils in Key Stage 1 should be taught to:

* Understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions

* Create and debug simple programs

* Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs

* Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content

* Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school

* Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.


In Reception we have a computing aspiration: "I can use technology safely to support my learning".

In Key Stage 1 we follow the Teach Computing Curriculum to ensure excellent coverage of computing objectives.  Take a look at the overview below.

E-Safety is extremely important and is taught to all year groups. We use Sid's Top Tips to help children know what to do to stay safe. We also use the Digital Citizenship curriculum across the year to develop our understanding of media balance, online privacy and digital footprint.
