The Computing curriculum will actively support the growth of the Whitewater Learner whilst ensuring children gain a comprehensive understanding of key concepts such as knowing how computers work and how to programme them, how to create content for others and ensure that children can keep themselves safe online and know what to do if they are worried.
The Whitewater Digital Citizen will be able to approach technology confidently and be able to assess and use it productively and purposefully to create and participate in the global digital landscape. They will learn the principles of computer science in which they will understand how computers work and the foundation of computational thinking and how this can be used effectively through programming.
We aim for our children to be digitally literate, meaning they will be able to use technology to express themselves, develop their ideas and create content for other users. In addition, the children will be safe users of technology while also being aware of the steps to take when presented with unsafe situations, they will be an active and respectful participant in the current and future digital world.
At Whitewater, we have designed our Computing curriculum on a two-year cycle. The Roadmap shows the journey that our children take as they progress through school. Our Computing curriculum is progressive, broad and engaging.
