Silkmore Primary Academy


Computing Vision 

At Silkmore we want our children to be able to embrace and adapt with the ever-evolving world of technology. We aim to equip our children with the necessary tools to engage with computers and use them as tools to influence their learning with a focus on e-safety and digital resilience. Through the curriculum, children will constantly revisit prior learning and extend on this as they progress through the school.

A major component of our Computing curriculum is ‘Internet Safety’, in which we equip children with the knowledge they need to keep themselves and others safe online. Our Computing curriculum prepares and enables children to become digitally literate thus preparing them for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world

The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computing, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.


  • Curriculum sequenced from Y1 to Y6 to build on prior learning.
