Hawridge & Cholesbury’s Computing Vision

A pupil at our school knows and understands how to use and interact with others in a safe and positive way online. In addition, they use computational thinking and creativity to understand and communicate with the world.

The aim of the Computing curriculum at Hawridge & Cholesbury School is to raise children’s aspirations, through our broad, FRESH curriculum. The curriculum will recognise, acknowledge and celebrate the children’s various starting points and provide opportunities to broaden and enrich their horizons; all children will be given the opportunity to grow and develop as computing students.

The Computing curriculum will focus on growing and deepening the knowledge, development and application of skills. Children will be exposed to challenging concepts and will explore a range of values and attitudes. Within the curriculum, the progression of skills builds year by year on the subject knowledge of each pupil and ensures a deeper understanding of what it is to be a ‘computing learner’.

Connections and links within and across the computing curriculum will be made to promote and support learning. The curriculum will develop children by building inquisitive minds and by providing them with opportunities to reflect critically, both on their learning and on the tools accessible to them in the wider world.

Across the rest of the school curriculum, Computing will be used to enhance learning wherever possible, broadening their skills and their application
