ICT and Computing

Computing Long Term Overview

Computing is used across all subjects:


  • to engage children with their learning;
  • help children work independently;
  • help children communicate their learning on lots of different platforms (word processing, video, blogs, presentations etc);
  • to enable children to become digital citizens of the future.


At Sherard we want our children to be digitally literate and use the internet and apps safely; all our children are taught the importance of E-Safety. Children will also feel confident in using word processing, spreadsheets, presentation and media software as part of their daily curriculum work.


From September 2014 computing was also introduced into the curriculum.  This will develop our children's understanding of how computers work.  They will develop knowledge of sequencing, programming and coding to develop their own systems, programs and even design simple games.


The computing curriculum at Sherard aims to give all our children the opportunity to access emerging, innovative technology, enhancing curriculum and enriching multi-media skills through interaction.
