Computing & Internet Safety

Computing Intent:


At Hanley Swan, we recognise that computing is an essential skill for the digital age. We intend to equip children with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in a technology-driven world. We aim to achieve the following:

  1. Problem-Solving Focus: Our curriculum emphasizes problem-solving. Children will learn computational thinking, logical reasoning, and how to break down complex tasks into manageable steps. These skills extend beyond computing and empower them in various contexts.

  2. Digital Literacy: We want pupils to be digitally literate—confident users of technology who understand its impact on society. They’ll learn about online safety, data privacy, and responsible digital citizenship.

  3. Programming Basics: Children will explore programming concepts, algorithms, and coding languages. They’ll create simple programs, fostering creativity and logical thinking.

  4. Understanding Systems: Our curriculum delves into how computers work, from hardware components to software applications. Pupils will grasp the basics of networks, databases, and cybersecurity.

  5. Real-World Application: We aim to bridge theory and practice. Children will apply their learning to real-world scenarios, whether it’s designing a game, automating tasks, or analyzing data.
