Tudor Primary School





At Tudor Primary School, we recognise that pupils are living in a rapidly changing world, in which computing is playing an ever-increasing role. We aim, therefore, to equip children with the skills to adapt to new technology and to give them confidence to use computing to further their learning and assist them in everyday life. In doing so, all pupils will have access to computing equipment and resources, according to their ability and age range. At Tudor Primary School, we believe that increased computing skills promote independent learning and gives greater access to a wide range of ideas and experiences. It enhances the quality of children’s work across the curriculum and should enhance and enrich the learning process.

Aims of Computing Curriculum

  • To ensure computing lessons are inclusive, ambitious and creative for all pupils
  • To develop children’s individual computing capability and understanding
  • To ensure all children know how to stay safe online
  • To enhance teaching and learning in other areas of the curriculum by cross curricular use of computing
  • To develop computing as a tool for learning and investigation
  • To equip pupils with the confidence and capability to use IT throughout their next stage of learning.
  • To recognise their potential, and deepen the necessity of computing, applying these skills in everyday life
  • To stimulate interest in new technologies






In EYFS, children begin to develop computing through activities within the environment based around computational thinking. These are designed to be collaborative and cross-curricular. This is to support children in developing the necessary problem-solving skills needed for everyday life. The EYFS provision for computing is designed to support the development of skills the children will need to be successful with KS1 end points for computing.


Key Stage1 and Key Stage 2

We have used the best research to create a carefully sequenced and progressive curriculum map containing the key concepts children need to be procedurally fluent and to work and think like computing professionals.


The key concepts in computing we plan a progression for are as follows:

  • Problem solving and logical thinking
  • Creative Content
  • Digital literacy


At Tudor Primary School to enhance the teaching and learning of all curriculum areas within the school, teachers employ a range of Rosenshine Principles in order to embed and check understanding. Teachers demonstrate small step learning and formative assessment to incrementally develop knowledge and secure retention


At Tudor Primary School, the computing curriculum incorporates cross curricular links and discrete computing skills. Computing is taught as part of our creative curriculum, while still teaching the discrete skills required. Children in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 spend at least 1 hour per week studying computing. Children will spend additional time using computing to support other subjects. They are able to develop awareness and transfer their skills of being resilient, aspirational and problem solvers. At Tudor Primary School we recognise the need for children to understand the purpose of their work and therefore we take every opportunity to share their computing work in school and on the school website where there are galleries of children’s work for each class.


At Tudor Primary School the computing curriculum provision covers the following topic areas (across all year groups);

  • E-safety
  • Text and Multimedia
  • Images, Video and Animation
  • Sound
  • Electronic Communication
  • Digital Research
  • Data Handling
  • Data Logging
  • Logo and Control
  • Simulations and Spreadsheets


At Tudor Primary School, children are encouraged to evaluate both their work and the computer effectiveness. The nature of computing as a tool means that there will be many opportunities for links with other subjects. Teachers plan some activities which emphasise the development of computing capability and others which support the subject being taught. In order to ensure progression and continuity throughout the school, the school has developed a curriculum map which outlines curriculum coverage, progression and context of computing as a discreet subject and across the curriculum.



By the end of their school at Tudor Primary School, our children will be:

  • Confident and competent users of a wide variety of software and hardware
  • Critical thinkers that can solve problems
  • Responsible, respectful, risk aware and safe users of data, information and communication technology
  • Pupils are aware of, aspire to and be able to access wide and rich opportunities that they may not have otherwise have had exposure to.
  • Creative and imaginative using technology to present, record and share their work to a wider audience
  • Aware of technological uses and developments in the wider world.
  • Recognise and appropriately use the vocabulary associated with technology including basic coding language.
  • Understand how technology has developed over time and continues to change according to demand and how they can use it to their advantage across all aspects of life and learning.
