Our vision for Computing at William Lilley:

Our children learn to appreciate how computers can help them learn about, explore and change the world.  They learn how technology supports in all aspects of life.  Children begin to develop the skills which help them to make safe and respectful choices, communicate, create programs which bring about change, create and manipulate information in order to become active participants in a digital world.




In EYFS, children are taught how technology supports everyday life and are encouraged to use their developing ICT skills to support their learning

Curriculum skills are progressive, using Purple-mash planning, resources and assessment to support this development

Cross curricular application of skills give children the opportunity to consolidate their understanding and become independent in their choices

Digital safety is taught within computing and PSHE curriculum, as children develop their understanding of how to be safe

Children use an online reading scheme which develops their technology skills whilst enhancing their reading

Clear progression of skills development for each computing element; such as progression of algorithms from EYFS remote controlled devices to computer based software in KS1

Technology is used as an integral part of lessons, both for staff and children; supporting with learning journeys and assessment

Suite of laptop computers used for discrete computer skill sessions across F2 and KS1

F2 children have independent access to computers to develop their own lines of enquiry

Computing after school club gives children the opportunity to develop their skills further

Children have access to internet resources, where appropriate within lessons in order to explore and research

School website has links for the children to access and information for whole school events and activities to follow
