‘I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’ (John 10:10)

Computing Curriculum at St Edward’s


 ‘Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you want to pursue a career in the 21st century, basic computer programming is an essential skill to learn.’ Stephen Hawking

Computing is a subject that will equip 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 in to both natural and artificial systems.

At St Edward’s we want our pupils to be masters of technology. Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in children’s lives. Therefore, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. We want our children to understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a school we utilise technology (i.e. social media) to model positive use. We recognise that the best prevention for a lot of the issues we currently see with technology/social media is through education.

At St. Edward’s we recognise that technology can allow children to share their learning in creative ways. We also understand the accessibility opportunities technology can provide for our children. Our knowledge rich curriculum has to be balanced with the opportunity for children to apply their knowledge creatively, which will in turn help our children become skilful computer scientists.


We deliver the National Curriculum via the Teach Computing scheme of work.  We also encourage staff to try to embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible. We want our children to be fluent with a range of tools to best express their understanding and hope by upper key stage 2 children have the independence and confidence to choose the best tool to fulfil the task and challenge set by teachers.
