    For all children to learn, apply, experience and enjoy Computing and technology throughout their primary school years. To provide opportunities for children to explore a range of technology that will help to develop their awareness of technology in everyday lives and experience these technologies through a hands-on approach. To ensure that the teaching of Online Safety and Computing is discrete and cross-curricular. To provide opportunities for a range of programmes to be used effectively and to support pupils’ transition to secondary


    We aim for Butleigh children to be coders and users of technology who can:

    • Code for practical and inventive purposes
    • Connect with others safely and respectfully, understanding they need to act within the law and with moral/ ethical integrity
    • Understand how devices can connect
    • Communicate ideas using the devices and applications through the curriculum
    • Collect, organise and manipulate date effectively.




    In KS1 and KS2, class teachers deliver units of lessons that have been chosen for each year group by the Computing Coordinator. These lesson plans are provided by eLims and these have been developed with primary schools. All children have access to the technology across the school and technology to support their learning.



    We take our objectives from Elim for access to training hub sessions, as well as planning documents for each year group.
