Milton Park Primary School

Every day a learning adventure

Intent Implement Impact


At Milton Park Primary School we aim to make everyday a learning adventure. New technologies and the digital world are becoming an integral part of young people’s lives, both within school and in their lives outside of school. It is essential that all pupils gain the confidence and capability they need in this subject to prepare them for the challenges of a rapidly developing and challenging technological world.


The Computing Curriculum will:

  • allow learners to understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • allow learners to analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • allow learners to evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  • allow learners to be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology



A balanced computing curriculum at Milton Park Primary School enables children to develop their understanding and use of technology through practical and exploratory opportunities using deliberate practice to develop their understanding. As they move through school, they develop an understanding of how technology and digital systems work. Children develop their digital literacy, showing that they know how to use technology respectfully and safely. Children engage and develop a deep understanding of computer science knowing how to develop and create their programs for a range of purposes. The computing curriculum aims to develop children as computational thinkers to enable them to solve problems across the whole curriculum and life in general.



A balanced curriculum that is sequenced appropriately across the three areas of computing with natural links to other curriculum areas. Planning demonstrates a substantive and disciplinary approach to teaching. Children develop fluency in using technology for a range of purposes. Staying safe online is integrated into all areas of the curriculum. It is taught specifically in computing and within PSHE. Computing lessons focus on collaboration and creativity by providing extended periods of time to work independently and with others to solve problems and develop the knowledge and skills required to be computational thinkers.



  • Children will be confident users of technology, able to use it to accomplish a wide variety of goals, both at home and in school.
  • Children will have a secure and comprehensive knowledge of the implications of technology and digital systems. This is important in a society where technologies and trends are rapidly evolving.
  • Children will be able to apply the British values of democracy, tolerance, mutual respect, rule of law and liberty when using digital systems.
