Robert Peel Primary School


Computing Intent


We believe that Computing and ICT skills will help prepare our children to participate in a rapidly changing world, in which work and other activities are increasingly transformed by access to varied and developing technology. We recognise that ICT is an important tool in both the society we live in and in the process of teaching and learning. Computing and ICT skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners. Robert Peel’s children use technology to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsibly, creatively and critically. This technology is used by children in structured computing lessons and within the teaching of the wider curriculum ensuring children are given opportunities to develop fluency of skills. They learn how to employ ICT to enable rapid access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of sources. Our intent is for all members of our school community to become confident and safe users of ICT, with the skills and knowledge to use appropriate ICT resources effectively as powerful tools for teaching and learning, and to be able to apply these skills to new tools and software that they may encounter in the future.
