The new National curriculum for computing states:

Purpose of study:

A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and 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.


Our essential learning objectives for Computing at Corton Primary School are to enable children:

  • To be able to communicate ideas, using applications and devices across the curriculum

  • To be able to code for practical and inventive purposes

  • To be able to connect with others safely and respectfully

  • To be able to collect, organise and manipulate data effectively

    Whenever possible, we aim to teach the application of computing skills within a cross curricular context to ensure that children find the learning purposeful and meaningful.
