Pupil Voice for Computing

"We learn how to be safe on the internet."  Year 4 child

"I don't go on the computer at home without mummy so I am safe." Year 1 child



At St. Theresa’s we endeavour to provide a broad and balanced Computing Curriculum that enables our children to become lifelong explorers of Technology in a socially responsible and safe way.

 We strive for children to become autonomous, independent users of computing technology, developing confidence, creativity, resilience, self-evaluation, problem solving and critical thinking skills.



In order to achieve our Intent our Teachers and Leaders will aim for the following in each area.


  • Deliver creative computing lessons following the schools ‘Teach Computing’ curriculum. These sessions should be 1 hour a week.
  • On top of computing sessions staff should plan at least one cross curricular session where the pupils use technology to enhance learning.
  • Ensure online safety is of high importance within each lesson when appropriate or as a standalone lesson.

Evaluate teaching, resources and skills

  • seek support from the subject leader when CPD is required
  • continue to evaluate Computing Assessment data and curriculum coverage
  • gather evidence of children’s work throughout school and from a range of abilities.
  • continue to update resources within school to ensure children have access to high quality resources whenever possible.
  • constantly review the digital divide does not become a barrier to pupils in their class’s learning especially for the most vulnerable and Pupil Premium

Online Safety

  • Share our Online safety rules with pupils at the start of each academic year.
  • Continue to develop Online Safety within school.
  • Share Online safety with parents when appropriate or needed.



By the time pupil leave Theresa’s they will

  • use computing equipment safely and respectfully
  • achieve age related expectations in Computing at the end of their cohort year
  • have key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum:
    • computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work)
    • information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information)
    • digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully).
  • understand and apply the fundamental principles of computer science, including logic, algorithms, data representation, and communication
  • analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated progressive practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
  • always act effectively when their online safety is compromised
