We want all children at Hawridge and Cholesbury CE School to understand how to use and interact with others in a safe and positive way when online and how to be able to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and communicate with the world.  Our Computing curriculum, (alongside our JIGSAW PSHE curriculum,) helps children the importance of keeping safe online and how to protect themselves and other when using online social platforms.  We use NSPCC resources, specifically the 'Speak Out Stay Safe' campaign to support our teaching of e-safety.NSPCC Speak Out Stay Safe

We aim for the Computing curriculum at Hawridge and Cholesbury CE School  to create opportunities for our  children to grow and flourish, be FRESH and have high aspirations to be digital citizens of the future. Our Computing curriculum is planned using Teach Computing and acknowledges and celebrates the children’s various starting points and provide opportunities to broaden their horizons; all children are given the opportunity to grow and develop as computing students.

Our Computing curriculum focuses on growing and deepening the knowledge, development and application of key computing skills. The progression of skills builds year by year and aims to ensure a deeper understanding of what it is to be a ‘computing learner’.

Connections and links within and across the Computing curriculum are made to promote and support learning. The curriculum develops 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, thus enabling them to 'have life and have it more abundantly'.

Across the rest of the school curriculum, Computing is used to enhance learning wherever possible, broadening their skills and their application, enabling them to grow and flourish.
