Computing

At St. John’s, our Computing curriculum enables pupils to develop digital skills and creativity. The curriculum is designed to ensure that pupils become competent in using technology in a safe and creative way. Computing is taught weekly, using different forms of technology, such as laptops and iPads. Our planned Computing curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in:

  • digital literacy

  • computer science

  • information technology

  • online safety

These strands are regularly revisited to ensure that learning is embedded and skills are successfully developed by the time pupils leave school. As part of the Computing curriculum, children learn to develop their ideas through Computing, for example in writing and presenting, as well as exploring art and design using multimedia and programming.
