Our Intent for Computing
At SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School we intend to prepare the children for a rapidly changing technological and digital world. Our curriculum is based around a specially designed programme, called Purple Mash, which the teachers adapt to support the needs of all learners. It ensures progression as children learn and develop skills to become computer literate, and gain an understanding of computational thinking. They will learn that technology is continually evolving and that, digital safety and keeping themselves safe online is a necessity. The content is based around computer science where children learn the principles of coding, how digital systems operate and how to use this in programming. Children will also learn to use information technology to create programs and systems. Our computing curriculum is embedded throughout the wider curriculum and provides children with opportunities to be creative, emotionally intelligent and analytical in their thinking.
