Computing

We believe that Computing is an essential part of the curriculum. Computing is a significant part of everyone’s daily life and children should be at the forefront of new technology, with a thirst for learning new skills. Computing within our school therefore provides a wealth of learning opportunities and transferrable skills that help children to understand how the world around them works. Computing lessons are also an opportunity for creativity and exploring in a safe environment. 

Key stage 1

By the end of Key Stage 1 children should be able to:

·         understand what algorithms are

·         create and debug simple programs

·         use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs

·         use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content

·         recognise common uses of information technology beyond school

·         use technology safely and respectfully

Key stage 2

By the end of Key Stage 2 children should be able to:

·         design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals

·         use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs

·         use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work

·         understand computer networks including the internet

·         use search technologies effectively

·         select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices

·         use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.      


E-safety

E-safety is an important concept at Glebe Primary. We ensure that the year always begins with an E-safety lesson to support children and help to feel safe any time they are online. Children will cover the topic throughout the year in line with the PSHE curriculum as well as take part in an assembly led by the Computing co-ordinators.

We take all issues around the safety of our children online seriously and offer guidance to parents or children with any problems.

Here are some computing websites that we recommend
