St John XXIII Catholic Primary School Inspiring Faith in our Future


Computing Intent


At St John XXIII, we understand that our pupils have a variety and range of digital experiences already through everyday life.


We see it as our mission to to prepare our children for society and future job roles that are yet to have even been imagined.


By the time children leave St John XXIII, they will have mastered a range of skills that will support their future development. These are...


  • To be good communicators – language will be modelled daily to encourage speaking and listening and be able to use technology as a form of communication whilst being aware of the platform they are using and the audience they are addressing.
  • To be enthusiastic, lifelong learners who are prepared for a future where technology will play a huge part of future developments.
  • To understand how to keep themselves safe and be respectful in their communities and have a sound awareness of Online Safety and how to report any thing that makes them feel unsafe while online.
  • To develop their God given talents by being creative in using technology for coding and an understanding of computer systems.
  • To be independent, resilient learners who enjoy challenges and understand how to fix problems that arise when working with online systems. 


They will also have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work), information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information) and digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully).


The objectives within each strand support the development of learning across the key stages, ensuring a solid grounding for future learning and beyond.
