At Silvertrees Academy, we aim to ensure that our children have access to a curriculum that allows them to be technologically fluent and provides them with the tools they need to be successful in the modern world. With technology playing a significant role in society today, we believe ‘Computational thinking’ is a skill children need to be taught to protect them in an ever changing digital world. Not only do we want them to be digitally literate and competent users of technology but through our computing curriculum we want them to develop creativity, resilience, problem solving and critical thinking skills.

Children will be introduced to a wide range of technology in computing lessons, which include iPads and interactive whiteboards; allowing them to practice and improve their ever-growing skills.

Online Safety

Through our computing curriculum we aim to ensure that pupils become digitally literate so that they can use technology safely and respectfully. This includes keeping personal information private and knowing where to go for help and support when they have concerns about inappropriate content or contact through the internet.

A priority within this subject is for learners to have a secure understanding of how to use the internet safely, keeping personal information private and what to do if they see online content that scares them or is inappropriate. We aim to support parents with internet safety and regularly provide updated information.

In addition, children receive regular updates and reminders throughout the year and we also take part in the national Safer Internet Day each February.

At Silvertrees we take a head, hand heart approach in all subjects to develop the children's  knowledge, skills and positive attitudes. These are the head, hand, heart aims we want all children to achieve in computing by the end of Year 2...


To achieve the curriculum aims in computing, long term plans sequentially map learning using the Rising Stars computing scheme ...
