Curriculum statement


At Tillingbourne, we deliver a high quality computing curriculum that prepares our children for a rapidly changing world where technology is everywhere and will play an important role in their lives. By the end of Key Stage 2, children will have systematically developed their knowledge of computer science (digital systems, programming), information technology (using computer systems to store and retrieve information) and digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully). All children will leave us equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to participate safely in the digital world.



Planning is structured by a comprehensive progression document and scheme of work. The computing curriculum is delivered both on and off devices. The school is well-resourced enabling all children to use laptops both individually and in pairs during computing lessons and cross-circularly.  Children are explicitly taught skills which they independently apply and further develop to meet key objectives. Digital leaders are trained to develop and deliver activities to their peers promoting on-line safety. The curriculum is supported by units from Rising stars and the NCCE. Explicit on-line safety units are taught and on-line safety underpins all our work across school.



Computer science: pupils are able to understand the principles of information and computation; how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through coding, programming and problem solving.

Digital Literacy: pupils can express themselves and develop ideas through evaluating, investigating and predicting. Pupils are confident in understanding how to use a variety of technology safely, including online.

Information Technology: pupils are able to use technologies effectively; select use and combine a variety of software on a range of devices and present, evaluate and analyse their results and findings.
