Rufford Computing Button_edited.jpg


Our computing curriculum ensures all children have the right to have rich, deep learning experiences that balance all the aspects of computing and enables our pupils to use technology effectively and safely outside the classroom. At Rufford, we know that teaching computing and digital skills is vital if children are to be able to participate effectively and safely in our modern world.  

At Rufford Primary School, we teach a curriculum that enables children to become effective users of technology who can:  

  • Understand and apply the essential principles and concepts of Computer Science, including logic, algorithms and data representation.  

  • Analyse problems in computational term, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems;  

  • Evaluate and apply information technology analytically to solve problems;  

  • Communicate ideas well by utilising appliances and devices throughout all areas of the curriculum.

From EYFS to Year 6, our computing curriculum supports a curiosity for technology, enabling all children to develop and acquire a range of progressive knowledge, skills and rich vocabulary. Our use of Purple Mash has been designed to promote a broad experience and support all staff through the use of built-in and live CPD opportunities.


The curriculum also aligns to our wider school values: Resilience, Integrity, Self-awareness and Excellence.   






Through high-quality teaching resources, rich learning modules and careful planning, we aim to enhance the children’s computing capital.

Here is our Rufford Route for Computing:

Online Safety

Rufford Primary School takes online safety extremely seriously. We have an Online Safety Policy that provides guidance for teachers and children about how to use the internet safely. Our Computing and PSHE lessons in school enable children to learn the safe use of technology and the internet, allowing them to think about how they can keep themselves and others safe, being mindful of how their behaviour, words and actions can affect others. Internet safety is threaded through units, individual lessons and celebrated on Internet safety days.  This document shows how online safety is taught progressively:
