Computing at Manor Field

At Manor Field Primary School, we deliver a carefully designed curriculum that encourages pupils to embrace and utilise new technology in an evolving digital world. A theory-based approach combined with practical sessions underpins our curriculum to allow our pupils to understand the concepts of computational thinking and implement their skills in real world contexts while maintaining their safety online.


Across the school we follow the Teach Computing scheme of work. This was launched in September 2022. Teach Computing is supported by the National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE), as funded by the Department of Education. Children are taught progressively about the following key areas:

  • Algorithms

  • Computing systems 

  • Creating media 

  • Data and information 

  • Design and development 

  • Effective use of tools 

  • Impact of technology 

  • Networks Programming 

  • Safety and security

    As children progress from year to year, they are introduced to new concepts and terminologies. Each year the children have more opportunities to apply taught skills and knowledge. Children throughout the year also take part in events such as Computer Science Education Week and Safer Internet Day to further their knowledge and become more engaged in their learning.

Online safety underpins the computing curriculum at Manor Field. Each child is taught how to use the internet safely and respectfully, understanding the necessary precautions to take and where to seek help.

Each year, the children partake in the Hour of Code, a global movement teaching millions of students around the world how to code in just one hour. The program is designed to demystify code, to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science.
