Norwood Primary & Pre-School


Curriculum Overview

Our vision is for every child in Norwood Primary and Pre-School to experience a research-informed, inclusive and ambitious EPIC computing curriculum, which teaches the breadth and depth of the computing curriculum beyond programming, and gives our children extra-curricular opportunities to grow their love of and proficiency with all aspects of computing. Our vision is to foster conscientious and digitally literate learners who understand the wonderful advantages and risks that exist online.


There are four main strands of the new Computing curriculum: Computing Systems and Networks; Creating Media; Programming and Data and Information. 


Computing Systems and Networks provide children with knowledge about different devices and their components and how different technologies can work together within a network. 


Creating Media allows children to explore and develop skills involving digital photography, video production and website design. 


Programming enables children to learn about algorithms and develop their programming skills through a wide range of contexts to achieve a desired output.


Finally, Data and Information gives children the opportunity to create and work with databased and spreadsheets.


Computing skills and concepts are taught on a weekly basis right across the curriculum using the laptops or tablets in the classroom.


At the heart of all we do is Online Safety. Through this, the children will cover how to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly. Regular teaching of Online Safety is important to ensure that children feel confident when using computers and the Internet, and know what to do if they come across something either inappropriate or uncomfortable.


Please see the Online Safety page, found under the parents tab, for any information regarding current online safety documentation and presentations.
