Computing Curriculum

We’re all part of an increasingly digital world. From global supply chains to buying our weekly shop, computing is central to all of our lives. Here are Brize, our computing curriculum offers superb benefits for our children as we believe it improves children’s language skills and promotes social development and creativity. Having a deeper understanding of computing also helps our children to be better equipped when tackling maths and science problems in other curriculum areas. For this reason, computing is not only taught through discrete skill based Computing lessons, but we also teach it through our wider curriculum to deepen and broaden the learning experiences for our children.
Computing is taught using the Teach Computing curriculum which has been designed by experts using the latest pedagogical research and teacher feedback. Due to our mixed age classes, we teach this subject on a 2 year cylce and blend whole class or year group specific teaching depending on the topics taught.


We take the online safety of our children very seriously. As well as being delivered as part of our Computing curriculum, it is taught through our wider PSHE curriculum as well as through annual Safer Internet days. At the beginning of the school year, children and parents are asked to read and sign our ‘Acceptable Use’ forms (Acceptable Use Policy and Acceptable Use for Children) to ensure expected behaviours around the use of technology are shared, understood and agreed.

Children start using computers and access the internet from a very early age, whether it is at home, at school, through Ipads or mobile phones, via gaming apps, social media platforms or accessing Youtube. It is vital children and parents know how to protect children and young people and keep them safe when online and free from abuse.  Please see below some useful leaflets with regards to popular Social Media outlets.
You can report online abuse via this link.

CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) is supported by experienced Child Protection Advisors who can ensure children get the right support they need.
