Our computing curriculum is designed to equip children with the skills and understanding to live in a technological world, this includes being able to use a variety of computer software and coding programmes.
There is an emphasis on the importance of Online Safety for all year groups with an in-depth e-safety programme in the first few weeks of the Autumn term which is then followed up throughout the year. Working with parents to create a combined message for children is extremely important in keeping our children safe so we share teaching with parents through the 'Meet the Teacher' meetings in the Autumn and through monthly emailed e-safety bulletins (past copies can be viewed via the Behaviour and Safety tab).

From September 2019, Rustington Community Primary School will have access to an early release of 'Codingmaster' which is a student first learning environment, combing and balancing varied teaching styles with the use of computer gamification. Its aim is to produce an engaging and up-to-date digital learning environment, designed to meet and exceed the national curriculum learning objectives for computer science, digital literacy and e-safety for children aged 5 to 11. Initially this will be integrated into the Computing curriculum in Year 1 with a view to then phasing it into all year groups.
