Computing at Coppice

Intent Statement: 

At Coppice Primary School we believe that the use of ICT is an integral part of the National Curriculum as it is a key part of everyday life. We recognise that children are entitled to access a range of quality hardware and software (computers, tablets, programmable robots and digital and video cameras) and a structured and progressive approach to the learning of the skills needed to use this effectively. 

We are a well-resourced school with iPads, netbooks, recording devices, programmable toys and interactive whiteboards to support the delivery of high quality computing lessons. We have a subscription to Purple Mash that follows a programme of study that fulfils the National Curriculum. 

Aims: 

- Provide a relevant, challenging and enjoyable computing curriculum for all pupils. 

- Meet the requirements of the National Curriculum programmes of study for computing. 

- Use Computing as a tool to enhance learning throughout the curriculum. 

- To respond to new developments in technology. 

- To equip pupils with the confidence and capability to use Computing in later life. 

- To enhance learning in other areas of the curriculum using, Computing. 

- To develop the understanding of how to use Computing safely and responsibly. 

The school believes that computing: 

- Gives children immediate access to a rich source of materials.

- Can present information in a variety of ways. 

- Can motivate and enthuse children. 

- Can help children to focus and concentrate. 

- Offers potential for effective group working. 

- Has the flexibility to meet the individual needs of each child.
