Our vision at Cheam Common Infants is to ensure that Computing is taught across all year groups from Nursery through to Year 2 using the Computing and Digital Skills Curriculum, which is broad, balanced and progressive from year group to year group covering coding, ICT and digital literacy. 

Through Computing, PSHE and events such as Safer Internet Day pupils are equipped with the knowledge and understanding to work safely, responsibly and have a healthy approach to the use of technology. This will be achieved through the teaching of the four risks: content, contact, conduct and commerce and will leave them prepared for an increasingly interconnected world.

In class using  Beebots, Scratch Jr and Lego Education platforms, pupils will have a breadth of opportunities to develop their coding knowledge, their logical thinking and problem solving thus pupils will leave CCI with a secure knowledge of coding and importantly, how things work. We hope to create the computer scientist of the future. 

Pupils will have an exceptional grasp of a range of digital skills, which will be part of everyday lessons using their Chromebook and modelled by their class teacher. This will allow them to work efficiently and to create a range of digital artefacts to present their learning and communicate  in a variety of different and interesting ways.  pupils will have access to Howdou, which can be completed independently to learn how to improve their efficiency using G Suite tools.

Within each subject, pupils will acquire and develop the key knowledge that has been identified within each unit and across each year group.  The substantial knowledge identified by each year group is informed by the National Curriculum and disciplinary knowledge is mapped for each year group and is progressive throughout the school.
