Computing at Orchard Meadow

Our Intent

Orchard Meadow pupils will:

  • Generate high quality presentation skills through using a range of different programmes;
  • Have the confidence to choose the correct programme to present relevant information;
  • Write, tinker and debug code in order to solve specific problems or creatively develop products to be consumed by an audience;
  • Understand how to keep themselves and other safe whilst using the internet.

They will do this through our key drivers and enquiry questions:

Implementing our vision

Please click here to view our Computing Curriculum and, our Computing Skills Progression document shows how historical skills build over year groups from Nursery to Year 6.  to find out more about what our pupils study and how curriculum content is mapped against core skills;

Our Computing Roadmap shows how content is built progressively;

We are committed to delivering our curriculum effectively against the 5C's: contentcreativitycompassioncommunity and cohesion. See the individual unit plans ('5C's documents') below which detail lesson content, core and deepening skills and how each unit is linked to our drivers and enquiry questions.
