Hoddlesden St Paul’s Church of England primary school aims to provide its pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum, set within a caring and supportive Christian community in which each member of the school is valued and respected and is empowered to reach their full potential.

At Hoddlesden St Paul’s, we aim to prepare our learners for their future by giving them the opportunities to gain knowledge and develop skills that will equip them for an ever changing digital world. Knowledge and

understanding of ICT is of increasing importance for children’s future both at home and for employment. Our Computing curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in digital literacy, computer science, information technology and online safety to ensure that children become competent in safely using, as well as understanding, technology. These strands are revisited repeatedly through a range of learning themes through the implementation of the CUBE curriculum during children’s time in school to ensure the learning is embedded and skills are successfully developed. Our intention is that Computing also supports children’s creativity and cross curricular learning to engage children and enrich their experiences in school.


The aims of teaching Computing at Hoddlesden St Paul’s:

The National Curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

→  Can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation

→  Can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems

→  Can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems

→  Are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
