All pupils at Maltby Manor Academy have the right to experience a rich and engaging curriculum which delivers all aspects of computing. We believe it is crucial that we prepare our children for a rapidly changing world in which technology plays an increasingly significant role by encouraging the development of ‘computational thinking’. It is our ambition that our pupils are able to participate effectively, confidently and safely in the digital world and that by the end of KS2 they will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum:

  • Computer Science (programming and understanding how digital systems work),
  • Information Technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information)
  • Digital Literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully). 

We also recognise the deep links computing has with science, design and technology and mathematics, and we endeavour to build strong links between these subjects throughout our school. It is our aim to introduce children to a range of technology that allows them to practise and improve skills they have learnt – ensuring that our pupils become digitally literate, so they are able to express themselves and deliver their ideas through information and communication technology.


In order to effectively deliver the computing curriculum, we have introduced the online platform ‘ICT with MR P’ which will support the delivery of the computing curriculum across the school.

Staff are encouraged to use the skills progression and scheme of work within the platform as a ‘starting point’ on which to build their lessons. Staff are encouraged to build links between subjects when planning learning opportunities, seeking to bring together STEM subjects in order to give greater purpose and understanding to what is being taught.

We have introduced a wider range of technology to our pupils by implementing the use of iPads throughout school to further enhance the delivery of the subject and build on our existing resources. We believe that this will allow the subject to become a vehicle which can enhance the delivery of other subjects across the curriculum.

In EYFS, technology is planned and taught as part of learning journey work and provides the children with the opportunity to recognise how technology is used in everyday life and begins to develop their knowledge of basic computing. Various technology is utilised in all areas of provision ensuring that the use is both practical and purposeful.
