We want our learners to develop a love and understanding of the computing curriculum whilst also being conscious of how they can remain safe online. By the time the children leave our school, they will have been taught all about staying safe on the internet, how to access and use a whole range of applications, the skills needed to develop a product and about how codes are the brains behind every piece of hardware and software. The curriculum aims to prepare children with the skills and knowledge for a world that is largely influenced by technology.

We want our children at Orleton to develop a love of music making.  The Charanga scheme, which we use to support our teaching, provides week-by-week resources for each year group to cover the National Curriculum for Music, achieve the Orleton skills progression, as well as cover the school’s Knowledge Map. The scheme moves away from outcome / objectives concepts to an integrated, practical, exploratory and child-led approach, where we will not always know what the learning outcomes will be. As such, each lesson is designed to cover multiple areas of the music curriculum. We hope that their primary music education will lead to a lifetime of enjoyment in all that the world of music has to offer.
