Welcome to the Computing curriculum page!

During their time at Northcote Primary School, pupils will have the opportunity to develop their understanding of how computers can be used for learning and creativity. It is our aim that children are fully engaged in computing lessons and make progress as they move through their primary school education.

We aim to:

  • Build children’s confidence in their use of computing equipment.
  • Encourage pupils to become independent and responsible users of technology, recognising opportunities and risks and using strategies to stay safe.
  • Enable children to use and apply their computing knowledge, skills and understanding confidently in their learning and in everyday contexts, transferring these skills across other curriculum areas.
  • Provide pupils with the skills they need and an awareness of how computers can help them.
  • Enable children to recognise that computing affects the way in which people live and work safely.
  • Develop the understanding of how to use computing safely and responsibly.


On this page, you will find the Computing policy; a breakdown of the Whole School Plan; as well as a few examples of the fantastic computing lessons across the school.
