Computing at Shibden Head Academy

At Shibden Head Primary Academy we provide a complete computing curriculum from Early Years through to Year 6, following Rising Star’s Switched on Computing scheme of work. The scheme ensures that all children are developing their computing skills through creative and inspiring projects.

At Shibden Head we aim to provide a relevant, challenging and enjoyable computing curriculum for all pupils, whilst meeting the requirements of the national curriculum programmes of study for computing. We ensure that computing skills are used as a tool to enhance learning throughout other areas of the curriculum. We ensure that an understanding of how to use technology safely and responsibly is embedded in our curriculum to equip pupils with the confidence and capability to use technology and computing throughout their later life.
