At Worth, our children develop Computing skills that can thoughtfully be applied in a range of different situations throughout their schooling and beyond. The subject encourages children to develop an understanding of how technology makes a difference in all aspects of life- at home, at school, and in the workplace.
As a school we follow Purple mash, introducing it from Reception and continuing all the way up to Year 6. There is a clear progression of skills throughout the two-year program, each year covering all strands of computing; computer science, information technology, and digital literacy. Alongside this, teaching online safety as a whole school is a focus with regular assemblies and workshops where available.
Purple mash is also regularly used for homework throughout the school, using cross-curricular links between learning where possible. In addition to this, applying our digital literacy skills across non-core curriculum subjects, utalising them in various contexts.
