At Minet Junior School, it is our intention to provide children a relevant, challenging curriculum to enable them to develop the necessary skills for computing. Our aim is to guide children to respond to new developments in technology by allowing them regular use to different aspects of computing. With the ever-evolving digital era surrounding our children, it is also our utmost duty to demonstrate and instil an understanding of how to use computing safely and responsibly. With such opportunities readily available to children, our desire is that children will leave Minet Junior School with the confidence and capability to use computing throughout their later life.



At Minet Junior School, our scheme of work has been adapted from Purple Mash and Teach Computing and is taught on a weekly basis in an ICT suite. We have adapted both schemes primarily to suit the needs of the children as well has ensuring full coverage of the National curriculum. Both schemes are designed by subject experts and are based on the latest pedagogical research. Furthermore, by using Purple Mash, children can access their work at home and further allows them to engage with this platform across other subjects.

In addition to the Computing lessons at school, children at Minet Junior also have individual access to educational platforms such as IXL, Education City and Microsoft Teams.

This allows children to be literate in their usage of technology whilst ensuring the lessons cover the national curriculum.

Children have access to multiple platforms such as IXL, Education City and Microsoft Teams which gives them more tools to support their learning.





Children at Minet Junior School will be confident users of technology and will be able to use it to accomplish a wide variety of goals, both at home and in school. Through modelling of key vocabulary used within computing, children will have a secure and comprehension knowledge of the implications of technology and digital questions. Ultimately, children will be able to demonstrate a confident and enthusiastic approach to computing and they will leave Minet Junior school with a secure understanding of computational thinking.

National Curriculum 


The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems

are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
