At All Saints, we use the Knowsley City Learning Centres scheme of work. Our computing curriculum is divided into 3 areas: Computer Science, Information Technology and Digital Literacy (which includes eSafety). 

The aim is to have six dedicated Computing units per academic year. This is to allow more time for the application of Digital Literacy skills in other areas of the curriculum. Children should have more opportunities to use technology to support their learning in literacy, maths, and all the other areas of the school curriculum. All children have access to the computing suite in school as well as portable devices within the classroom.

It is important to recognise however that some aspects of traditional ICT are still required to be taught discretely and should not be forgotten:

In KS1, children should be taught to: “use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content”;

In KS2, children should be taught to: “select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information”.
