Langford Village Academy


Our children are taught Computing skills using the Purple Mash Scheme of Work which is adapted by teachers to the needs of their individual children.

The scheme is rigorous in covering the aspects of the computing curriculum:

  • Computer science (CS),
  • Information technology (IT)
  • Digital literacy (DL).

The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

We understand the immense value technology plays not only in supporting the Computing and whole school curriculum but overall in the day-to-day life of our school. We believe that technology can provide: enhanced collaborative learning opportunities; better engagement of pupils; easier access to rich content; support conceptual understanding of new concepts and can support the needs of all our pupils.
