At Hertford St Andrew Primary School, we aim to provide a high-quality computing education which allows our children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world through digital means. Within our curriculum we acknowledge that our children have been immersed in technology in their lives outside of school and aim to build upon the digital knowledge and skills they come to school with. Our curriculum prepares our children for a life in which digital technologies will be a prominent medium both socially and vocationally. Via Purple Mash, computing is organised into three core strands outlined in the National Curriculum: Computer Science, Information Technology and Digital Literacy. These three strands are taught through weekly hourly computing lessons.
We deliver the computing National Curriculum objectives through the Purple Mash Scheme of learning.
