SHPS Computing Curriculum Aims As defined by Somerset ELIM

In following the Somerset Computing Programme, informed by the new national curriculum, we intend that every learner will become a:

  • Digital Citizen who is safe and responsible
  • Digital Creator who is logical and creative
  • Digital Communicator who is digitally literate

The subject content in the Programmes of Study have been divided into threads to plan a progression for KS1 and KS2 learners to achieve identified skills and processes to become the above .

The Foundation Stage will follow their appropriate framework that fit into the strands identified by this Somerset planning.

All resources for this planning is available at the website below:

Teachers at Staple Hill will modify this planning, as appropriate, to meet the needs of all our learners and to fit into our curriculum provisions.
