Being The Best We Can Be




At Hauxton, we help our pupils to become independent, creative, safe, respectful and problem-solving digital citizens with a broad and transferrable skillset. We use iLearn2 to ensure our children have opportunites that make computing fun, inspiring them to develop skills beyond the classroom and building an awareness of all the opportunities the subject provides.

The three key aspects children are taught: 

  • Computer Science  – this covers programming (both block-based and text-based), including computational thinking using web-based software such as Scratch. Pupils across Key Stage 1 and 2 will write code to program physical and on-screen objects, interactive games and use text-based language, such as HTML and Python by the end of Key Stage 2.
  • Information Technology - this covers the use of applications to create digital content, including document creation and editing, video making, digital art, graphic design, animation, 3D modelling and website building. 
  • Digital Literacy  – covers skills to find, evaluate, utilise and share using technologies and the Internet. This includes important e-safety and internet research skills, as well as an understanding of computer networks in Key Stage 2. 


In addition to regular computing sessions, pupils at Hauxton have the opportunity to apply skills within a variety of subjects, including presenting their learning, creating charts, using apps and designing projects. 


iLearn2 has a clear progression of skills, which is available to view here:


As part of assessing pupils' computing skills, each iLearn2 activity pack includes different resources to capture and track pupil learning, including assessment grids and challenge sheets.
