The aim of the school’s computing curriculum is to prepare and equip pupils with both the knowledge and the skills that they will need in order to become active participants of the ever evolving digital world that we now live in.

At Bitterne CE Primary, the computing curriculum is broken down in to two main areas: ‘Digital Literacy’ and ‘Computer Science’. ‘Computer Science’ consists of teaching pupils how write algorithms in order to create simple programs for a purpose, including debugging and problem solving. It also broadens pupil’s understanding of how computer networks operate, including the Internet. ‘Digital Literacy’ aims to equip pupils with the understanding of and skills to effectively use a wide range of computer programs, including publishing programs such as Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint. It also allows children to embed and apply key computational skills such as typing.

Underpinning the entire computing curriculum is teaching the importance of ‘E-safety’ and how to keep yourself and others safe online. ‘E-safety’ is taught alongside all aspects of the computing curriculum and aims to guide pupils to make safe choices about sharing their personal information when using the Internet and social media.
