At Worthinghead Primary School we aim for all pupils and members of staff to become confident users of technology. We understand that technologies are developing rapidly and we seek to provide pupils and staff with the skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. Through the new programme of study for Computing they will learn how computers and computer systems work, design and build programs. It also aims to develop ‘Computational thinking’ which is a skill that allows pupils to solve problems, design systems, conceptualise and understand computer-based technology.
Worthinghead Primary School follows the National Curriculum Computing Programmes of Study. We use the Bradford Computing Curriculum which has been written to reflect the three aspects of the programmes of study. The curriculum is split into three main strands: Digital Literacy, Computer Science and Applying Technology. E-Safeguarding is included within all of these areas.
