At Combe CE Primary School, we want all pupils to be ‘techies’ who have:
- Competence in coding for a variety of practical and inventive purposes, including the application of ideas within other subjects.
- The ability to connect with others safely and respectfully, understanding the need to act within the law and with moral and ethical integrity.
- An understanding of the connected nature of devices.
- The ability to communicate ideas well by using applications and devices throughout the curriculum.
- The ability to collect, organise and manipulate data effectively.
We use the ‘Switched On Computing’ scheme to teach Computing. As we have mixed age classes, we teach the scheme over a two year cycle as outlined below.
