At TIMU Academy we provide a computing curriculum designed to equip our pupils for an ever changing technological world. We provide opportunities to develop children’s ability to think critically and creatively as well as developing their computational thinking.
Our computing lessons, and wider curriculum aims to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. We want our pupils to learn how to use technology to create and innovate, and our curriculum, based on the three core strands of computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this aim.
Our knowledge rich curriculum provides opportunities for pupils to apply their knowledge creatively which will in turn help our pupils become skilful computer scientists. We encourage staff to try and embed computing across the whole curriculum where meaningful connections can be made, to make learning creative and accessible, for example using pictograms to support the maths curriculum, word processing to write for different audiences, or animations to support learning.
Using Purple Mash allows us to ensure the knowledge and skills taught build year on year to deepen and challenge our learners. We aim to provide a computing curriculum that the children enjoy and value.
