The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” Steve Jobs, founder of Apple

At Great Bedwyn School we understand that technology is changing the lives of everyone and is an integral part of everyday life. Through teaching Computing we equip our children to participate in a rapidly changing world, where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. Our intention is to use IT in creative and meaningful contexts across the curriculum and to give the children experience of using a range of technologies. Our Computing curriculum prepares the pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.

Computing is a hugely diverse subject; in Computing lessons pupils will, through this one subject, become app and web developers, computer scientists, software engineers, programmers, games designers, digital artists, animators, data analysts and book authors. We follow the award-winning Mr Andrews Online Creative Computing Scheme. Through following this program, we aim to provide a fun, engaging and high-quality computing education for all pupils at Great Bedwyn Primary School.

Computing curriculum intent: years 1-6
