Computing Statement of Intent

Computing Statement of Intent.


At Junior Jam we realise that pupils are becoming more and more aware of technology at a young age. Therefore, it’s our intent to not only educate pupils how to use technology in an academic way, but also to prepare them for using it outside of school.

Our course is designed to teach the whole computing curriculum from Reception to Year 6. We do this by combining the computing curriculum with a wide range of media subjects to inspire pupils in a topic they may not have done before. It is our hope that educating pupils in topics such as music production or stop motion animation will develop new interests for them and that Junior Jam can hone this interest and that this may one day be something they choose to do as a career.

We want to ensure that pupils cover all the national curriculum points and achieve progress using different aspects of technology and computing safely and with a deep understanding. To be able to do this, we have set out a curriculum for computing spanning the school career of a child. This can be evidenced in our progression maps.


To ensure that the curriculum is progressive and differentiated from year group to year group, our curriculum is designed so that each year is placed on a specific level. We have written the lesson plans with this intent in mind and targeted the learning at that specific year group.
Achieving our intent hinges upon seeing the same classes every week for a 45 minute to 1 hour session for a full academic year. We will show our intent through the use of progression maps and curriculum link documents that will evidence how each of our activities hit certain national curriculum points.

We do all of this in the hope that any child who has undertaken lessons with Junior Jam will leave with confidence in their use of technology and the knowledge on how to use it safely.
