Our Computing Curriculum
Our ambition at DSJ is to provide a high-quality computing education which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand; challenge the world, and equip them for the next stage in their education.
At DSJ we believe that Computing is an essential part of the curriculum; a subject that not only stands alone but is woven, and should be an integral part of all learning. 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.
By the time they leave DSJ, children 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).
The objectives within each strand support the development of learning across the key stages, ensuring a solid grounding for future learning and beyond. Our 4 key learning behaviours are the Golden thread that runs throughout our curriculum
