Computing at Downside
At Downside, we have an ambitious, broad and balanced Computing curriculum to ensure we equip our pupils with the skills and knowledge to thrive in our increasingly digital world. We are committed to establishing an inclusive setting where each child can actively participate in the subject, regardless of their background or ability. This environment aims to build vital confidence in computing and a passion for learning as pupils advance through our curriculum. We focus on nurturing their computational thinking, fostering creativity, and enhancing digital literacy, empowering them not only as conscientious technology users but also as innovative creators of the future.

This term, some KS2 children have enjoyed a weekly after school club run by ‘Jam Coding’.
They have built their own games on ‘Kodu’ using both information technology and computer science skills. The children were able to design their own land and program sprites to race each other.
