What is Computing at Westglade?


Our computing curriculum ensures learning is engaging and relevant to what our children will need to succeed in life. It allows children to build confidence using technology which is particularly important given the current increase in reliance of technology. Our aim is for our children to see themselves as ‘Coders’, 'Programmers' and confident using different digital devices, who are equipped with the relevant knowledge and skills. Across the children’s time at Westglade, they will build upon their knowledge each year, which will support children as they make the transition to secondary school and will also aid in further life. Through clear links to staying safe online, children will be able to ensure that they can protect themselves when using technology and become sensible and safe technology users. We have a range of technological devices that children have access to in order to ensure that they are digitally literate.

How is Computing progressive?

Our Knowledge Paths and Skills Ladders were created using a scheme called Teach Computing. We use Teach Computing as the main tool to deliver our computing curriculum as it provides a clear, progressive and sequenced curriculum. Teach Computing is created by the National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE). The NCCE is funded by the Department for Education and supporting partners and marks a significant investment in improving the provision of computing education in England. 

How do we teach Computing?


We teach computing in stand alone lessons once a week. If possible, we also use computing in other areas of the curriculum to enhance learning opportunities and apply new substantive and disciplinary knowledge. Online safety is a large part of our learning, beginning each lesson with an introductory discussion around online safety.
