Voluntary Controlled Primary School

Be Kind, Take Pride and Enjoy!

Computing

At Acton CEVC Primary School, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum where learning develops from:

  • Trips, visitors and first hand experiences;
  • Curriculum days;
  • Stimulating learning environments;
  • Opportunities to create, perform and compete;
  • Making links between areas of learning;
  • Recognising our place in the community.

Our curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens. Learning activities are planned which take account of the individual needs of children, and we aim to develop positive attitudes towards learning and relationships. We ensure that every child acquires the knowledge, skills, attitudes and concepts necessary for them to develop intellectually, spiritually, morally and physically, according to his or her own individual need. We regard the social, emotional, cultural and physical needs of children as equally important as the academic.

Tutankhamun's Tomb

As part of their topic on Ancient Egypt, Year 6 were challenged to create a Sketch-Up model of Tutunkhamun's tomb using the exact measurements. Here is Teira's fantastic model.

At Acton CEVC Primary School, we aim to deliver a high quality curriculum which "equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world" and "ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world." (National Curriculum, 2014).

 

At our school, our children:

  • understand, and can creatively apply, the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation;
  • show courage and perseverance when analysing 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 - showing compassion towards others when dealing with matters of online safety.

 

We offer a rich and varied range of teaching approaches to achieve these ends, always striving to challenge every one of our pupils to make the maximum progress regardless of their starting point, with an understanding that different levels of support may be required to help them achieve their goals.
