Aims of our computing curriculum:

At Cartmel Primary School, we will ensure that our children are given the opportunity to engage in a range of computing experiences. We aim to provide the children with the opportunity to gain the confidence and abilities to use computing and information technology effectively in their learning through a cross curricular curriculum. We will enable the children to understand that computing has a purpose that is much wider than perceived and that, in the future, much of their lives (both socially and vocationally) will take place in a digital world.  We will equip the children with the skills of how to be a responsible online citizen and how to keep themselves safe in the online world. 


Computing skills are taught in standalone lessons where specific skills are focused on over a sequence of lessons. This learning can then be applied across the curriculum in a range of subjects. We use the PurpleMash scheme of work to ensure that we deliver full coverage of the National Curriculum.


Through teaching computing, we equip children to participate and thrive in this rapidly changing technological world. 

  • All pupils have the skills to use technology to support their learning through the use of iPads, Chromebooks and SMART boards.
  • Pupils produce high quality examples of original, imaginative, creative and innovative computing work evidenced through presentations, saved documents and classroom displays.
  • All members of the school community contribute to the school’s online presence and our school website show case the excellent work carried out by our pupils.
  • Pupils feel confident to speak about their computing achievements and understand their next steps.
  • Cross-curricular links in lessons build confidence, motivate pupils and support them in making connections and remembering and applying the skills they have been taught.
  • Pupils have highly developed transferable knowledge, skills and understanding and are able to make connections between what they’re learning and the wider school community and world.
