Pupils, Parents and Staff Raising Standards Together

Computing

At Stanford we aim to provide children with a challenging and enjoyable Computing curriculum which covers the teaching and learning outlined in the National Curriculum for Computing (2016). We deliver a high quality Computing curriculum, supported by our NAACE ICT Mark, which equips children with the skills required to live and work in a digital age. We motivate and enthuse pupils by integrating computing through cross curricular areas, creating deep links with mathematics, science, geography and art.

We recognise, prioritise and teach the importance of E-safety and being safe online through class lessons and assemblies. We educate children on possible dangers, and communicate with them on how to keep themselves safe and use ICT responsibly.

Acers, easi-speaks, data loggers, sound buttons, digital cameras and floor robots are a few of the tools that engage and allow our children to develop their computational thinking and learning of new skills. With an increased focus on Computer programming, we provide children with a structured and progressive curriculum which allows them to develop their understanding and skill set of computer science. We encourage our children to continue their learning of Computer programming by attending Code club where they share their own scratch creations online.
