Computing Curriculum Statement

At Middlestown Primary Academy we recognise that Computing and ICT will undoubtedly continue to play a major role in the children’s lives at home, in further education and future workplaces, so wish to ensure that their key experiences and developing abilities are both transferable and effective life skills. We want to equip pupils of all ages to understand that computational thinking and programming skills help them to understand both the natural and digital systems in the world around them. Our aim is that pupils can safely and confidently use a range of technology to creatively express themselves and to be active participants in the digital world. We want computing to be integrated into everyday teaching and learning to engage, inspire and record the unique curriculum at Middlestown.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
