At Holy Family, we believe a high quality computing education ensures that children become digitally literate.

We hope to instill a sense of enjoyment around using technology to encourage children to become digitally competent for an ever-changing digital world. We intend for the children to understand how to use technology responsibly, respectfully and safely.



the ‘Kapow’ scheme of work, the children are taught the three strands throughout the year. These include:

  • Computer science,
  • Information technology and
  • digital literacy

The Kapow Primary scheme is divided up into five key areas which creates recurrent route whereby pupils revisit and build on their previous learning:

  • Computer systems and networks
  • Programming
  • Creating media
  • Data handling
  • Online safety

Using the three strands and the 5 key areas. The implementation of these is as follows:

KS1 children are taught to:


•          understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise instructions,

•          create and debug simple programs,

•          use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs

•          use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.

KS2 children are taught to:

•          design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals,

•          use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs

•          use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content.



The impact of the scheme of work that we use can be assessed through both formative and summative opportunities. Pupils should advance through the year groups by building on their previous learning. Pupil’s should leave Holy Family equipped with skills necessary to succeed in secondary school.

By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in their programme of study.
