At Grimsargh St Michael’s, our vision is to create and implement an engaging and well-rounded Computing curriculum which enables children to be confident in the use of equipment, software and safe use of the internet. Technology is pivotal in our ever-changing digital world and thus our aim is to model and educate our children on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely.

Our broad curriculum encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this. These strands are taught discreetly through a range of units to ensure learning is embedded. 

We recognise that technology allows children to share their learning in creative ways, understanding also, the opportunities that technology can offer our children. Our knowledge-rich curriculum provides opportunities for children to apply their knowledge creatively, to become skillful computer scientists.

We aim to provide opportunities for children to utilise and further deepen their computing knowledge and skills within other subject areas. We believe this enhances children’s fluency and allow them to see opportunities in which their knowledge and skills can be used outside of ‘Computing’ time.

The ‘Three BIG Ideas’ that underpin our Computing curriculum are: 

  • Online Safety

  • Digital Literacy

  • Creativity
