Hi, my name is Mrs. Shannon and I am subject lead for Computing.
Computing is an integral part of the National Curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Computers, iPads, programmable robots, digital and video cameras are some tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information. We use Purple Mash scheme of work to teach computing from Reception to Year 6. It is a structured approach to computing, so children acquire and build on their skills throughout school. This enables them to become ‘Computing Proficient’.
At Valley Road Academy, we strive to improve the quality of teaching and learning in Computing. We have invested in good quality resources and equipment to support the delivery of Computer Science.
Our computing curriculum is delivered across school using the Purple Mash Scheme of Work.
