Welcome to Computing


Our Intent: 

Through teaching computing we aim to equip our children with the skills they need to be able to engage in a rapidly changing world that is being increasingly transformed by technology. It is our intention that we enable our children to find, explore, analyse and present information while knowing how to stay safe online.

The National Curriculum: 

Computing is on our National Curriculum and it is split into three strands: 

  • Computer Science (programming or coding, and problem solving)
  •  Information Technology (using spreadsheets, creating presentations and manipulating graphics)
  • Digital Literacy (encompassing e-safety and teaching pupils how to select the most appropriate digital content)

Our Scheme of Work: 

At Broughton Infant School we have chosen to invest in Purple Mash for all the children in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2. The scheme of work supports our teachers in delivering fun and engaging lessons to help raise standards and allow all the pupils to achieve their potential. We are confident that the scheme of work more than adequately meets the national vision for Computing. It provides flexibility and cross-curricular links. 

Purple Mash at Home: 

All the children have access to Purple Mash at home. We encourage the children to explore the site and to practise the skills they have learnt at school when they are at home. 

Staying Safe Online: 

As a school we teach the children how to stay safe online. We achieve this by using our computing curriculum (Purple Mash), modelling good practice and by exploring e-Safety during Safer Internet Day.
