Tous Ensemble, En Chemin Avec Jesus


“Computers themselves, and software yet to be developed, will revolutionize the way we learn.” 

– Steve Jobs  


The intent of our computing curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the development of every child’s ability and academic achievement in computing. We want our children to know more, remember more and understand more in computing so that they leave primary school computer literate. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this. There is a clear and ambitious progression of vocabulary from Early Years to Year 6 to help them succeed in this.

The key intentions for our computing curriculum are to:

•     build a computing curriculum that develops pupil’s learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge of the world around them.

•     design a curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum so that children can reach and exceed their potential in the key strands of information technology, computer science and digital literacy.

•     build a computing curriculum that prepares pupils to live safely in an increasingly digital British society.

•     prepare pupils for the challenges posed by digital systems in a modern British society.

In order to provide a range of opportunities for our children to develop as independent, successful learners with high aspirations, our Computing curriculum is also intrinsically linked to our whole school curriculum drivers:

•     Gospel Values

Through Computing and Safer Internet Day we ensure that children know the importance of using technology safely and respectfully, becoming safer digital citizens. This will leave them prepared for the possible pitfalls of an increasingly connected world, but excited by the infinite opportunities it has to offer.

•     Cultural Capital

Throughout their school life, there are opportunities for children to become more culturally aware using the immediate environment of home, school and local area.  Expectations around pupils becoming effective communicators by using social media, email and blogging are enhanced in school with increasing parental engagement. By the end of primary school, pupils are confident and clear communicators who are able to articulate their views and opinions, in a range of situations, thus enabling them to become responsible citizens who enhance the community they live in.

•     Diversity

At Emmaus the children are taught that computer scientists come in all varieties. There are people of different genders, ages and ethnicities explored in each year group and displayed in the computing suite.

•     Independence

Our children become independent users of computing technologies, gaining confidence and enjoyment from their activities. They also are encouraged to be creative, explorative, resilient, inventive and flexible with computers and software.

•     High expectations

The children are set high expectations which inspire, motivate and challenge them and are set goals that stretch and challenge children from all backgrounds, abilities and dispositions.


Technology is changing the lives of everyone. Through teaching Computing, we equip children to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. At Emmaus, teachers plan to suit their children’s interests, current events, their own teaching style, the use of any support staff and the resources available. Adaptive teaching will also take place to ensure that all pupils can access the planned lessons.
