Children's Work

At Twiss Green the children learn the skills, knowledge and understanding of computing to ensure they learn the fundamental skills to be able to adapt and remain safe in a continuously developing digital world. 

Due to the fast pace of technology innovation and constantly emerging trends, it is recommended that this policy is reviewed, at minimum, at the start of every academic cycle. 

Aims of the Computing Curriculum

At Twiss Green we believe every child should have the right to a curriculum that champions excellence; supporting pupils in achieving the very best of their abilities. We understand the immense value technology plays not only in supporting the Computing and whole school curriculum but overall in the day to day life of our school and most importantly the futures of our children.

We believe that technology can provide: enhanced collaborative learning opportunities; better engagement of pupils, easier access to rich content; support conceptual understanding of new concepts and can support the needs of all our pupils.

Our aims


  • To provide a purposeful, rich, exciting and challenging Computing curriculum and creative, cross-curricular approaches to develop essential computing skills and knowledge.

  • Enthuse and equip children with the capability to use technology throughout their lives.

  • Give children access to a variety of high quality hardware, software and unplugged resources.

  • To promote an attitude of learning centred on enquiry and engagement and instill critical thinking, reflective learning and a ‘can do’ attitude for all of our pupils, particularly when engaging with technology and its associated resources. 

  • Teach pupils to understand the importance of governance and legislation regarding how information is used, stored, created, retrieved, shared and manipulated.

  • To promote self-care and wellbeing by deepening understanding of online safety and appropriate use of technology by equipping pupils with skills, strategies and knowledge that will enable them to reap the benefits of the online world, whilst being able to minimise risk to themselves and others.

  • To provide technology solutions for forging better home and school links.

  • To exceed the minimum government recommended/statutory guidance for programmes of study for computing and other related legislative guidance (online safety).

  • We aim for the children to know more, remember more and understand more about Computing.
