Computing Curriculum

A few snapshots of Computing at our schools!

Our Computing Curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum for Computing. Our aim is to provide a high-quality computing education which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand the world. The curriculum will teach children key knowledge about how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. Learners will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers. Through the use of Cumulative Questioning and quizzes we ensure that by the time children leave Bushey Primary Education Federation, they will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum; computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work), information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information) and digital Literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully). We aim to offer our children the opportunity to develop depth in their knowledge and skills over the duration of each of their computing topics. 

Our Curriculum:


At our school we value and ensure our children have digital literacy skills. As a community we understand the importance of these skills and the need for them to be constantly updated in line with new trends, apps etc. With this in mind we started of our year with a poster making competition. All the year groups followed a Purple Mash unit as a basis. We then extended this learning by using apps and websites such as 'Be Internet Legends' to really ensure the children's knowledge was as current as possible.


Below are the winners and runners up of our Competition!

Mrs Gupta (a BPEF parent), who works for Google Cloud delivered an assembly to both schools. She is very passionate about STEM and also does work to promote Women in Engineering. She started by explaining her job, then showed us the links she has to YouTube, Search, Gmail and FitBit. Everyone learnt a lot about how many different aspects of our lives require computers too - even a microwave! Thank you so much Mrs Gupta!
