A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.

Primary National Curriculum

At Morland Area C of E School we embrace a computing curriculum that reflects the increasing role played by technology in all aspects of society. Confident, creative and productive use of this technology is an essential skill for life.  We recognise that ICT capability is not just a set of basic skills but can be used to support logical reasoning and problem solving, analysis, research and design across all aspects of the curriculum.



Our computing curriculum 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 safe, responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology

Our commitment to new and emerging technologies enables children to access state of the art

equipment to enhance their learning including computers, laptops, netbooks and ipads - reflective of the range of technology beyond school. In Key Stage Two all pupils have their own IPad for use across the curriculum and access to an online learning platform, Purplemash, which supports all elements of the curriculum. Apple technology is used across the  curriculum, with classes engaging in their learning through airplay, apple classroom and use of a wide-range of APPs. Children are encouraged to apply their skills in computing across the curriculum and to appreciate how computers are applied to support a whole range of tasks in life after school.  

In Early Years and Key Stage One, children have access to IPads alongside a wide range of technology to support their learning across the curriculum, e.g. Beebots for coding and headphone stations for sound. 

We are very proud of our technological school. Please see below for useful links and further information about our curriculum.
