Computing

Our aim:
Here at St Michael’s we have worked very closely with MGL’s Teaching Team to create our own scheme of work that is of high quality and engaging for all children.
‘The National Curriculum 2014’ outlines that all children:

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology


Our curriculum outcome:
We work hard at St Michael’s to keep up to date with technology and are lucky enough to have class Ipads, as well as a fully equipped computer suite. Each year group is given an allocated time slot each week to access the school computers and Ipads, to learn new skills and embed the skills and knowledge they already have.
Online safety is embedded deeply within this scheme of work to ensure safe and responsible use of technology for all pupils and staff. We work hard to keep up to date on possible dangers and will share these regularly with the children. We have E-safety ambassadors in school who work closely with staff to promote this. If you would like more information about E-safety please go to this section of the school website.
