A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.
Primary National Curriculum
At Penruddock Primary School we embrace a computing curriculum that reflects the increasing role played by technology in all aspects of society. Confident, creative and productive use of this technology is an essential skill for life. At Penruddock Primary we recognise that ICT capability is not just a set of basic skills but can be used to
support logical reasoning and problem solving, analysis, research and design across all aspects of the curriculum.
Our computing curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:
Our commitment to new and emerging technologies enables children to access the latest
equipment to enhance their learning. Children have regular access to laptops and ipads within computing and as part of their cross curricular lessons. Programming and coding is taught through a range of software and hardware including probots, beebots and Scratch coding. Children are encouraged to apply their skills in computing across the curriculum and to appreciate how computers are applied to support a whole range of tasks in life after school. We have recently joined the local Lego League robotics circuit and hope to compete annually.
