Corpus Christi

Catholic Primary School

A Newman Partnership School within the Diocese of Portsmouth


At Corpus Christi, we aim to instil a sense of enjoyment around using technology and to develop pupils' appreciation of its capabilities and the opportunities technology offers to create, manage, organise, and collaborate. We want to develop pupils’ confidence when encountering new technology, which is a vital skill in the ever evolving and changing landscape of technology. Through our curriculum, we intend for pupils not only to be digitally competent and have a range of transferable skills at a suitable level for the future workplace, but also to be responsible online citizens.


Our scheme of work is designed with three strands which run throughout:

• Computer science

• Information technology

• Digital literacy


This is then organised into five key areas, creating a cyclical route through which pupils can develop their computing knowledge and skills by revisiting and building on previous learning:

• Computer systems and networks

• Programming

• Creating media

• Data handling

• Online safety


Where meaningful, units have been created to link to other subjects such as science, art, and music to enable the development of further transferable skills and genuine cross-curricular learning.


As a Google School, pupils each have their own Google account and are familiar with programs such as Google Docs, Slides and Sheets by the time they leave Corpus Christi. Homework and communication are shared via Google Classroom. Chromebooks and iPads are available for computing lessons and the wider curriculum where necessary. Other technology includes Bee Bots, as well as programs like Scratch and Python. We offer an after-school Coding Club to pupils in Key Stage 2 where children can develop their coding skills on their own Scratch accounts.


Through our computing curriculum, we aim that children will:

  • Be critical thinkers and able to understand how to make informed and appropriate digital choices in the future.
  • Understand the importance that computing will have going forward in both their educational and working life and in their social and personal futures.
  • Understand how to balance time spent on technology and time spent away from it in a healthy and appropriate manner.
  • Understand that technology helps to showcase their ideas and creativity. They will know that different types of software and hardware can help them achieve a broad variety of artistic and practical aims.
  • Show a clear progression of technical skills across all areas - computer science, information technology and digital literacy.
  • Be able to use technology both individually and as part of a collaborative team.
  • Be aware of online safety issues and protocols and be able to deal with any problems in a responsible and appropriate manner.
  • Have an awareness of developments in technology and have an idea of how current technologies work and relate to one another.
  • Meet the end of key stage expectations outlined in the National curriculum for Computing.
