Our approach to Computing

Kapow Primary Computing develops pupils’ skills and progression across five topics: Digital Literacy and Online Safety, Computational Thinking and Computers and Hardware. Designed by specialists, the lessons teach children to use new technology creatively, safely and confidently.

For teachers, there are easy-to-adapt lesson plans and classroom resources to save time and  plenty of ideas for cross-curriculum teaching. Bite-sized subject knowledge videos with demonstrations of lesson activities provide an opportunity for CPD and can inspire confidence in the non-specialist teacher. Subject leaders can save planning time and money as we minimise the cost of teaching Computing. The software is free and the only extras are Bee-bots and BBC Micro:bits, see our compatibility overview.
