Computing Intent Statement

Computing at The Grove
Welcome to The Grove Computing webpage. 
 Our computing learning is embedded in all our other subjects, from literacy to music, numeracy to PE.  It enhances children's learning, supports the other subjects and makes children into confident, safe and respectful users. 




We follow the national curriculum, linking objectives to topics in a cross-curricular manner where possible.  The progression of skills allows children to build on fundamental computing skills as they progress through primary school.  Please see our progression of skills document below.  Click on the links below to see the Key 1 and 2 curriculum areas, and then look at some of the examples of our computing learning.

We believe that as they leave primary school, children should be able to use digital technologies:

1. Safely – ensuring they always keep themselves and their personal information safe.

2. Discerningly – ensuring they know how to evaluate the information they receive through the digital world.

3. Responsibly – ensuring they communicate respectably in the digital world.

4. Confidently – ensuring they are confident to try new software and hardware.

5. Effectively – digital technologies are a tool to enhance their enjoyment and success in life, not limit their potential.
