Our Computing curriculum is carefully designed to ensure a progressive and coherent learning journey across all year groups. We believe in a hands-on, practical approach to learning, where pupils are actively engaged in real-world activities that promote problem-solving and collaboration. Our curriculum covers three main strands: computer science, information technology, and digital literacy. By the end of their primary education, pupils will have developed a deep understanding of computational thinking, algorithms, and coding concepts. They will be proficient users of various software tools and show a high level of digital literacy. Pupils will be confident in using technology to enhance their learning experience across the curriculum.

The intent of our Computing curriculum is to

  • Empower future innovators and digital citizens.
  • Develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.
  • Foster digital wellbeing and awareness.


How Computing links with our school values:




Be Kind - We focus on online safety and how our behaviours can impact ourselves and others.




Be Respectful - We show mutual respect and tolerance of others in the way that we conduct ourselves online.






Be Passionate about Learning - We are challenged to develop our computing skills across a range of programmes.





Make a Difference - We develop our understanding of technology’s place in today’s world, focusing on safety.



At St Vincent’s we aspire to make the learning ambitious for all learners. Our school curriculum includes the knowledge, skills and life experiences children need to thrive. Our learning is carefully planned and sequenced using the National Curriculum that can be found below:
