'I love school because we get to learn new things in Computing' - Demi


At Princes Risborough Primary School, we believe that Computing is an essential skill required to prepare our learners for the ever-advancing technological world in which we live. Our curriculum provides learners with the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills in the three main strands of the National Curriculum for Computing: Digital Literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully), Computer Science (programming and understanding how digital systems work) and Information Technology (using computer systems to create, store, retrieve and send information).


‘Tinkering’ with software and programs forms a part of the ethos of our curriculum to develop pupils’ confidence when encountering new technology, which is a vital skill in the ever-evolving landscape of computing. We intend for learners not only to be digitally competent and have a range of transferable skills at a suitable level for the future workplace, but also to be responsible online citizens.


Through inspiring and engaging lessons, we aim to promote digital literacy and encourage our learners to be active and confident in their ability to use technology safely and appropriately. Online safety is fundamental to the teaching of computing and is taught as a unit in the Autumn term but is also revisited throughout the year during lessons, PSHE and assemblies.
