Computing

At Oldway, we aim for a high-quality, experience-based computing curriculum which is designed to develop pupils’ computational thinking skills, enabling them to understand and change the world through logical thinking, precise decision making and creativity. Our pupils become active digital citizens, participating in, contributing to and questioning an ever-evolving digital world. Pupils are equipped to understand, analyse and evaluate the use of technology to ensure they are competent, confident and responsible users. This will help to prepare them for their future workplaces, including those which may not currently exist. 

At Oldway, we teach computing through discrete units under the following strands:

  • Information and communication
  • Technological design
  • Programming & algorithms
  • Digital literacy & online safety

After discrete teaching, these units are then used and applied across the whole curriculum, especially the use of technology to communicate and share information. Upper key stage 2 units are projects supported by STEM focuses, and computing works fluently alongside D&T projects.
