At Holme Slack, our aim is to provide a quality computing education that develops a future-ready workforce. Digital skills are not integral to computing subjects and careers alone – they are increasingly essential to the wider curriculum and young people’s employability. We aim to embed basic computing skills to ensure that children become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
Our computing curriculum provides children with the necessary skills to embrace and utilise new and existing technology in a safe and responsible way. We want our pupils to have the fundamental skills required to succeed in their future education whilst also understanding the principles of computer science and computational thinking. We also believe our children should be able to analytically solve computational problems, communicate in a digitally literate world and become competent and confident users of information technology.
Following the National Curriculum we aim for our pupils to:
At Holme Slack, we use Teach Computing to deliver computing lessons. A computing curriculum that is built around an innovative progression framework where computing content has been organised into interconnected networks.
