St Mary's Catholic Primary School



We believe that every child should have the right to a curriculum that champions excellence; supporting pupils in
achieving to the very best of their abilities. We understand the immense value technology plays not only in supporting the
Computing and whole school curriculum but overall in the day-to-day life of our school.

We believe that technology can provide: enhanced collaborative learning opportunities; better engagement of pupils; easier access
to rich content; support conceptual understanding of new concepts and can support the needs of all our pupils.

Our aims:

We also recognise and champion the importance on online safety. We ensure this profile is maintained and that pupil needs
are met by the following:


As St Mary’s, we have chosen the Purple Mash Computing Scheme of Work from Reception to Year 6. The scheme of work supports
our teachers in delivering fun and engaging lessons which help to raise standards and allow all pupils to achieve to their full
potential. We are confident that the scheme of work more than adequately meets the national vision for Computing. It provides
immense flexibility, strong cross-curricular links and integrates perfectly with the 2Simple Computing Assessment Tool.
