Computing and E-Safety

Our Computing Curriculum
Computing is 'championed' at Blackwater School by Mr. Hurrell
Our Computing Intent

In line with the 2014 National Curriculum for Computing, our aim is to provide high-quality computing education which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. We believe that computing is an essential part of the curriculum; a subject which not only stands alone but also forms an integral part of our curriculum.

Our curriculum will teach children key knowledge about how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. Learners will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers.

By the time they leave Blackwater, children will have gained key knowledge and skills in four main areas of the computing curriculum: Computing Systems and Networks, Programming, Creating Media and Data and Information.

Each strand supports the development of learning across the key stages, enabling children to participate effectively and safely in the digital world outside Blackwater School.
