We want all children to leave the school at the end of Year 6 with a clear understanding of computing; understanding the relevance of it in their lives, and knowing how to be safe within the world of technology.  St Robert Southwell Catholic Primary School provides:

  • A progressive knowledge and skills based curriculum throughout the school

  • Teaching staff with supportive and developmental CPD to support delivery



  • Progressive Purple Mash scheme of work, knowledge and skills progression implemented to cover Digital Literacy, Computational Thinking and Knowledge and Understanding of Computers and Hardware.

  • Progressive E-safety implemented throughout the school with St Robert's being awarded National Online Safety Mark for 2021-22.

  • Teachers will use the Purple Mash scheme of work to deliver an inclusive and aspirational curriculum where all children, including those children with SEND, EAL and those in receipt of the Pupil Premium Grant, are all able to access and make progress in Computing.


Our discrete Computing curriculum is planned to ensure that all children are able to access and complete tasks to a high standard. Children reflect upon and evaluate their work and others. Impact is captured in End of Unit quizzes to show progression in knowledge and skills and to reflect pride. 

Computing skills are also taught and used in a cross curricular way, with coverage evident in varied subject areas. Children are encouraged to be aware of the knowledge and skills they gain and make connections with prior learning and across the wider curriculum. Where necessary, Computing is taught discretely.
