Technology is changing the lives of everyone. Through teaching Computing we equip children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly driven by technology.

It is our aim to enable children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating and effective way. We want children to know more, remember more and understand more in computing so that they leave primary school computer literate.

Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this.

Westfield School has invested in excellent facilities, including touch screen boards for every class, a set of high quality class laptops as well as things like tablets and visualisers.  We aim to use technology to enhance children’s learning in all areas of the curriculum.

The computing curriculum and progression are set out in the following documents:
