The Computing curriculum at Overchurch Junior School is based on application. The curriculum is structured in units and taught in blocks coherently. In computing we use devices to create, store and manipulate data.
Our high quality computing curriculum has been planned to enable children to understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation. Children will learn to analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems. The curriculum offers opportunities for children to learn to evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
At Overchurch Junior School children are taught to be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
Children learn to be digitally literate-able to use, express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology-at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
Children use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly in line with our RESPECT values.
