At Broad Oak Primary School, our vision is to provide each child with a broad and balanced computing curriculum that will nurture their enthusiasm, encourage their creativity and exploration and develop their computational thinking.
In order to support our children to achieve their very best and prepare them for the future, we use a scheme developed by the National Centre for Computing Education. The National Computing Curriculum is designed to allow children to make progress year-upon-year in the three key areas out lined by the National Curriculum: Digital Literacy, Computer Science and Information Technology.
The Teach Computing curriculum is structured into units for each year group, and each unit is broken down into lessons that are taught systematically to all of our children.
Please find below our long-term subject overview and overviews for each unit by year group.
