At Southwick Community Primary school we understand that technology is part of everyday life and for most of us, is essential to our lives at home and at work.  Therefore we aim to equip the future generations with the necessary skills for adult life and employment within the ever-changing technological environment we live in.

In school, we follow ‘The Essentials Curriculum’ breaking down concepts into three key milestones. All staff use these to inform and support planning, fostering a progressive and skill based curriculum. Our computing curriculum is split into four threshold concepts. These are:

Code – developing an understanding of logic, instructions and sequences.

Connect – understanding how to safely connect with others.

Communicate – using a variety of apps to communicate with others.

Collect – developing an understanding of databases and their uses.

More information about what is taught in each phase can be found below.
