“A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.”


The Milestone Documents below allow you to see how our computing curriculum is developed across the four year groups.  The key knowledge that is taught, vocabulary that will be used, all linking directly back to the National Curriculum.  If an area is highlighted, the knowledge will be covered in that unit of teaching.


Technology is very much a part of our everyday lives and children have constant access to a wide variety of ICT. It is therefore important to help our children prepare for life within school and beyond by developing high standards in Computing through a broad curriculum. Increased Computing skills promotes independent learning and gives greater access to a wide range of ideas and experiences. Through Computing the school aims to prepare pupils to participate in a rapidly changing world.


The Computing programme of study introduced in the 2014 National Curriculum has a greater onus on programming skills as well as working collaboratively and being safe and responsible users online. At Broomfields Junior School our children will learn all these aspects as part of our exciting, varied and relevant computing curriculum.

We aim to ensure this by predominantly following the Knowsley City Learning Centre scheme of work alongside elements from Teach Computing and Rodo Codo for more focused programming work. This teaches children to use a wide variety of software and learn new core skills in computing. They will also then have the chance to further develop these skills by utilising technology across all curriculum areas.

Broomfields has a wide range of technology available in order to deliver our curriculum. All year groups have access to ipads, chromebooks and a selection of hardware, plus the opportunity to utilise resources from the wider TCAT community too. This allows our children to have a wealth of positive experiences, gives them the confidence and capability to use computing throughout their later life and equips pupils on how best to become safe and responsible users of technology.


To ensure coverage of all National Curriculum objectives our children will be assessed against the milestone documents. By the time our children leave Broomfields they will have had an exciting, varied and broad curriculum that will help them develop into responsible, safe online users as well as being digitally literate. This will enable them to have the confidence and capability to use computing throughout their later life.
