At Wellington we use the Teach Computing Curriculum from the National Centre for Teaching Computing to meet the National Curriculum requirements. The curriculum is built around a progression framework where the computing content has been organised into interconnected networks that build on previous years learning. Each year group is split into 6 units, supporting the learning across KS1 and KS2 and prepares our pupils for transition into Secondary School.
At Wellington we look to the Barefoot Computing early years approach to support computing as a part of the Early Learning Goals (including the EYFS statutory framework and the 2020 Development Matters) These link directly to the skills for computing within the National Curriculum.
Teaching our pupils about online safety is a priority at Wellington. It is taught throughout the year within both computing and PHSCE lessons. This is also supported through special events such Internet safety week. Wellington is a member of NOS (National Online Safety) and uses this service to promote online safety in school and in the wider the community.
At Wellington we have a range of electronic devices in school which the children can access in EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Through using the computers in the ICT suite as well as chrome books in the classroom, the children develop confidence in information technology across a range of subjects. Wellington pupils have access to a wide range of online software to support their learning including the Google education suite where learning and assignments can be completed at home as well as in school.
