Our intent is that our computing curriculum will provide children with the skills  to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. We aim to deliver a curriculum from which children are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content as well as ensuring that children become digitally literate at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.


At Westwood Primary School we guided by the National Curriculum for Computing (2014).

The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils: 

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation 
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems 
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems 
  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
