The Computing Curriculum

At Harlesden Primary School, pupils are exposed to a range of technologies to help meet the demands of the new computing curriculum where the emphasis is on programming and coding.  Our aim is for our children to confidently and independently use and apply information technology skills to support and extend their learning.  We use a cross-curricular approach for Computing and in addition to this hold themed weeks linked to coding and E-Safety.

Pupils enjoy using a variety of programs to support their skills in programming, which include Espresso coding and Scratch. In the Foundation stage, pupils use simple programming apps to develop their basic skills of manipulating objects and using directional language. In KS1, pupils develop their programming skills further through electronic toys (Bee-bots) and a range of IPad apps. In KS2, these skills are progressed through designing, writing, debugging and refining programs and games using more advanced IPad apps.

E-Safety is taught throughout the computing curriculum, through PHSE and through whole school assemblies. The safety of our children is paramount and they are taught key skills to help them stay safe on the internet. Parents also have access to E-Safety workshops that take place throughout the academic year.
