Askern Littlemoor Infant Academy


At our school we aim to develop independent learners who are well equipped for their future. Computing skills are an integral part of teaching and learning for all pupils and staff.

In order to ensure that breadth of knowledge is covered and well sequenced, and that the children have the opportunity to learn, apply and embed computing skills, we have decided to use the ‘Teach Computing’ scheme of work as recommended by the DfE. Created by experts, this scheme is built around an innovative progression framework which prepares or pupils by developing their understanding of computing systems and networks, media creation, data and information and programming.

The children progress through our computing curriculum, developing their skills in the key areas of:

  1. Computer Science Understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions to create and debug simple programs and use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs.
  2. Information Technology Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content. Recognise common uses of information technology beyond.
  3. Digital Literacy Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies. 
  4. E-Safety sessions are delivered by class teachers in an age-appropriate way, with e-learning being a planned aspect of PSHE, within Jigsaw lessons. The children take part in Safer Internet Day and assemblies also focus on e-safety throughout the year.

Technology is used in school on a daily basis, and staff are kept u to date with the latest technological advances by the Computing leader and through colleagues within our trust.
