COMPUTING

At our school we want pupils to be masters of technology and not slaves to it. Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in students' lives. Therefore, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely.

We recognise that technology can allow pupils to share their learning in creative ways. We also understand the accessibility opportunities technology can provide for our pupils. Our knowledge rich curriculum has to be balanced with the opportunity for pupils to apply their knowledge creatively which will in turn help our pupils become skilful computer scientists.

The curriculum champion for Computing is Mr Joe Yates.  To find out more about how Rowledge delivers this subject please contact him using the following email address: j.yates@rowledge.hants.sch.uk

PROGRESSION & ASSESSMENT

We have aligned a progression of skills and knowledge with the programmes of study for each year group. 

The documents below outline this progression and is used when assessing the ongoing progress of pupils.

PUPIL VOICE

We regularly conference pupils to gain an awareness of their attitudes to a range of curriculum subjects.  Below is a sample of thoughts from a range of pupils about how they feel about the Science curriculum at Rowledge.

KS1 PUPIL

"I like using the interactive white board with my class when we are computing. 

It helps me to do all sorts of different learning!"

LOWER KS2 PUPIL

"Computing is an exciting subject.  I really enjoy computer design and coding.

I think I probably know even more about coding than my parents!"

UPPER KS2 PUPIL

"I really like the computing, it is really fun and you get to be creative.  It is learning but having fun at the same time!

We learn about online safety which helps us keep safe from risks online.  For example, what to do if you recieve an unkind message online."

YEAR GROUP OVERVIEWS

Below are our Year Group overviews which provide a sense of the curriculum experience children will recieve in each year group.  We recognise that each cohort are individuals and promote flexibility in themes to meet the required subject objectives.  You can see the range of computing concepts taught across the school by reviewing these documents.
