In this section of the website, you will find information about our approach to teaching Computing at Neville’s Cross.
What does Computing look like at Neville’s Cross?
At Neville’s Cross, we believe that Computing is an important part of a child’s educational development and strive for a culture where the use of digital technologies is seamlessly integrated into all aspects of learning, where and when appropriate, so that our children are ready to thrive in the ever-changing digital world. Our computing curriculum is taught from Nursery through to Year 6 and progressively builds skills in three key areas: Information Technology, Computer Science and Digital Literacy. Children will build the necessary bank of knowledge and skills to become creators of future technology rather than just consumers. There is a key emphasis on learning skills such as programming, debugging and exchanging of information using high quality IT equipment such as Chromebooks, iPads, apps and
programmes. Our children are taught how to access information, evaluate its suitability, summarise it, store it, share it with others and tailor it to meet their own needs. Through this approach, we ensure our pupils become digitally literate, so they are able to use a range of technology and express themselves safely: we want our children to be masters of technology and not slaves to it.
