The curriculum for computing has four main aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation;
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems;
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems;
  • are responsible, competent, safe, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.


Computing is taught through use of the Teach Computing curriculum. This fulfils the requirements of the National Curriculum ensuring breadth, balance, continuity and progression of the knowledge, skills and understanding required.

Programming elements can and have been doubled up in recent years, to ensure key aspects of learning are in place to support catch up after COVID lockdowns.

Wherever possible, other elements are taught within the context of another area of the curriculum to ensure relevance and the opportunity for deep and meaningful learning.

In the Early Years children have a broad, play based experience of computing in a range of contexts. Pupils build confidence to use technology purposefully to support their learning for all Early Learning Goals.


Our computing curriculum is structured to facilitate a progression of skills and ensures that children can build on their understanding, as each new concept and skill is taught, with opportunities for children to revisit skills and knowledge as they progress through school. Pupils should leave St Anne’s Fulshaw with digital competence and confidence to support their progress in the next stage of their education.
