Our Curriculum


“The Web as I envisaged it, we have not seen it yet. The future is still so much bigger…”

Tim Berners-Lee, Inventor of the World Wide Web

Computing is immersive, engaging and thrillingly creative. Children at Great Bradfords Junior School thoroughly enjoy its hands-on and practical opportunities, and thrive upon being the creators (as well as the skilful users) of technology.

The computing curriculum champions excellence by supporting pupils across three main areas: computer science, information technology and digital literacy. The core of the subject is computer science, in which pupils solve challenging problems through coding. The skills of information technology centre on the cross-curricular use of software and hardware to produce exciting and purposeful project work. Through digital literacy, children learn how to use technology safely and to show respect for others when working online. This includes collaborative working over Office 365 and on Microsoft Teams, where pupils publish their creations for a wider audience.

With computing embedded across a range of subjects at Great Bradfords Junior School, children become responsible users of technology that can work together as developers to shape the future.
