Forward As One CE Academy Trust


At St. Paul’s, we aim to ensure that our pupils become digitally literate for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

Our computing curriculum is planned around the four strands of:

  • Digital Citizenship
  • Digital Literacy
  • Computer Science
  • Information Technology

Online Safety will be referenced throughout computing lessons. Before, during and at the end of lessons.

Mapping of Key Knowledge

Our Computing curriculum is organised into blocks with each block covering a particular set of disciplines. Key knowledge has been identified for each of the four areas of computing across the school.

  • Maths – Pattern recognition, charts/graph creation, problem solving, data handling
  • English – Instructional writing goes incredibly well with the teaching of algorithms. Working out how to break something down into steps, gives you the skills you need to write a successful algorithm.
  • Art – Not only can pupils apply their Computing skills to create digital art, they can also explore the idea of abstraction; the removal of unnecessary detail, to view things in their simplest form.
  • Science – The collection and organisation of data play a strong part in both Science and Computing and the subjects really complement one another. Not to mention the process of predicting, testing and reviewing in both subjects.
