Computing Statement of Intent

The Core Christian values at North Ferriby Church of England Primary School are Friendship, Forgiveness, Trust, Service and Creation. These values underpin our curriculum and enrich all aspects of our pupils’ education. Our curriculum prepares children for the future by developing Heathy and Safe, Trusting, Enterprising and Creative members of the local community. Embedded within our teaching and learning are opportunities for the pupils to understand the meaning and significance of the Christian faith.

At North Ferriby Church of England Primary School our computing curriculum provides our pupils with the life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology. We want our pupils to be able to operate in the 21st century workplace, educating them in career opportunities that will be open to them if they study computing.  We want children to become autonomous, independent users of computing technologies, gaining confidence and enjoyment from these activities throughout the wider curriculum. We want the use of Purple Mash software to support learning across the entire curriculum. We strive to create digitally literate and competent end-users of technology. Through our discrete computer science lessons, the children develop creativity, resilience and problem-solving and critical thinking skills.  We want our pupils to have a breadth of experience to develop their understanding of themselves as individuals within their community but also as members of a wider global community and as responsible digital citizens.
