Stechford Primary School


At Stechford Primary School we aim to provide a broad and balanced Computing curriculum which has been carefully planned to meet the knowledge and skill requirements of the National Curriculum programme of study, as well as the needs of our pupils. 

We believe that the teaching and learning of Computing is essential to the development of all pupils to prepare them for the world we live in today and to create ‘responsible, respectful and active digital citizens’. Pupils are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of technology. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for pupils to be able to use information technology in a critical and effective way, as well as using it safely and being accountable for their actions.


Although, the ‘Technology’ strand has been removed from the new Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, Stechford Primay School consider Computing to be an essential subject to teach to children in the foundation stage. Providing Computing opportunities within the curriculum ensures that children enter Year 1 with a foundation of key knowledge and skills.

Children have the opportunities to use computers, tablets, Beebots and online games. Some technological toys such as: cameras and microphones are also readily available in our continuous provision.

Computing opportunities in the E.Y.F.S. also ensure that children develop listening skills, problem-solving abilities and thoughtful questioning — as well as improving subject skills across the seven areas of E.Y.F.S. learning.
