Computing Intent at Trinity Croft


The aim at Trinity Croft is to provide opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident, resilient and successful, life-long learners.  Through the implementation of a broad and balanced curriculum, we aim for our children to have high aspirations to make an active and positive contribution to their school, their community and the wider society; now and in the future.


We want our children to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to able to keep themselves safe and healthy both mentally and physically.


Our computing curriculum is intended to prepare children for their future lives in equipping them with the skills and knowledge to be competitive in the future job market and to make sure that they are always safe from online harm. Children will learn about how technology has changed the lives of humans and about the positive and negative aspects of the future direction.


We intend for the children at Trinity Croft to leave us feeling confident and competent to use technology in a suitable way.  We will offer children an opportunity to grow through inspired learning.


The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

· Can understand and apply fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data  representation.

· Can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve problems.

· Can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
