Computing Intent Statement

At The John Moore Primary School, it is our intent that all children will be lifelong learners with the confidence and ability to develop their skills and understanding when meeting new challenges. Computing is an ever growing, integral part of life for us all and will play an essential part in our children’s future. The John Moore Primary School will provide our children with the skills, creativity, enthusiasm and understanding of safety to live and thrive in a world increasingly dependent on computers.

Children will be aware of all the possible risks when using the internet and electronic devices. They will understand the necessary precautions to take, to stay safe and know where to seek help and advice from. At The John Moore Primary School we strive to model and teach our children about respect in the real and virtual world through our comprehensive e-safety teaching. We want our children to fully utilise the internet and electronics devices to effectively enhance their learning across all subjects. Our children and their families will be given all the necessary information and guidance to help support them both in school and at home to keep safe in our ever-changing virtual world.

We aim to develop independent learners who are fluent in their understanding of computer science by teaching them how to use a range of programs where they are able to design, create and evaluate their work using specific vocabulary.

At The John Moore Primary, we will continuously assess the implementation and impact of up-to-date technologies, in order to continually develop our children’s curiosity about the endless possibilities they have to offer. We will support them across all areas of the curriculum to help highlight the never-ending uses and possibilities technology has to offer.
