ICT Curriculum

ICT Intent

The world is increasingly reliant on computer technology in every aspect of society. Businesses, science, government, health and medical sectors, education, industry, banking, the world of entertainment, training and even the arts would look very different today if not for the deeply ingrained application of the legion of tools afforded to us by computers.

What are the Aims of the National Curriculum for Computing?

The national curriculum for computing aims ensure that all children:

· can understand and apply the principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation

· can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems

· can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems

· are responsible, competent, confident, and creative users of information and communication technology.


This is why, at Brudenell we are committed to providing all our students with a comprehensive working knowledge of computing to enable them to confidently access the wide world of possibilities that such skills will afford them.

ICT Implementation

At Brudenell Primary School we are subscribed to the online platform “DB Primary” provided by New Era Technology. DB Primary has a fully comprehensive scheme of work that progresses sequentially from Year 1 though to Year 6. This means that the children are continually building on previous skills, knowledge and understanding.

We deliver weekly ICT sessions that cover the breadth of the ICT curriculum requirements by using fully interactive computer programs that mimic the various objectives the children are to achieve.

The interactive activities are challenging and enjoyable while still providing children with the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the wide range of computing skills.

Impact of ICT Learning

Here are some examples of the type of work produced by year 3 students.

The first clip is Advanced Logic, an activity from “Functional Thinking”, a series of activities aimed at developing the concepts of loops, repetition, and sequences within a larger algorithm requiring a good level of computational thinking.


The next clip is taken from  Lift Off, an activity from “Control”, a series of activities aimed at developing programming concepts such as movement, rotation and code blocks.
