By the end of KS2, children will have developed the knowledge, skills and understanding to help them access and use a range of technology in a safe and creative way. Children will have developed skills that equip them to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Children’s skills will have progressed to enable them to not only have met the requirements of the National Curriculum, but to also enjoy using technology to develop knowledge and ideas, as well as express themselves safely and creatively as responsible citizens. As a school, we continually seek out ways to improve our teaching of computing by taking part in and using research.
