At Pye Bank Primary School, the curriculum supports and develops the pupils’ ambitions and aspirations and understanding of the community and the wider world in which they live. The curriculum is underpinned by enquiry based practice and is research led. Through our curriculum we aim to expose children to new experiences, including business and the world of work and research. Academic performance and the development of self (Spirituality, social, moral, physical and cultural development and mental wellbeing) are given equal importance with curriculum design. Our curriculum is designed with the key aim of supporting all children to reach their potential.

The computing curriculum at Pye Bank aims to develop pupils’ understanding of digital world by giving them the opportunity to experience a wide range of computer equipment, programs and software. The curriculum is planned to build pupils’ skills and knowledge systematically in order to ensure they develop a good understanding of key computing concepts whilst engaging in fun and creative units of work. The four key strands that underpin Pye Bank’s computing curriculum are: Programming, Creating Media, Data and Information and Computer Systems and Networks. Pupils have the opportunity to cover each of these units through each phase revisiting and building upon core skills previously taught. Pupils have weekly computing lessons and have access to laptops, chrome books and iPads in school.
