Computing

Our computing curriculum is enquiry based, fully inclusive and meets the needs of all learners, starting from building strong foundations in our EYFS, supporting and challenging them on their journey to being secondary ready, and ultimately ensuring that they are equipped with the cultural capital, skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the future.

Computing Implementation

At Horizon Academy Trust, computing is taught sequentially throughout each year group starting with EYFS. This ensures children are able to develop depth in their knowledge and skills over the duration of each of their computing areas of learning. 

Knowledge and skills are mapped across each unit of work and year group to ensure systematic progression. Employing cross-curricular links motivates pupils and supports them to make connections and remember the steps they have been taught. 

The implementation of the curriculum also ensures a balanced coverage of computer science, information technology and digital literacy. The children will have experiences of all three strands in each year group, but the subject knowledge imparted becomes increasingly specific and in depth, with more complex skills being taught, thus ensuring that learning is built upon. For example, children in EYFS experiment with technology in different ways and through different programmes. Children in Key Stage 1 learn what algorithms are, which leads them to the design stage of programming. In Key Stage 2, this knowledge is built on where they design, write and debug programs, explaining the thinking behind their algorithms.
