Grow, Learn, Give


At Ryvers, we believe a high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing is a significant part of everyone’s daily life and we believe that children should be at the forefront of new technology.

Computing has links to a variety of other subjects such as mathematics, science and design and technology; we believe that, as an essential part of the curriculum, computing is a subject that not only stands alone but also is woven and should be an integral part of all learning.

At Ryvers, we recognise that pupils are entitled to quality hardware and software and a structured and progressive approach to the learning of the skills needed to enable them to use it effectively. We also recognise the importance of responding to new developments in technology, and aim to equip pupils with the confidence and capability to use ICT and computing throughout their lives.

We strive to provide a relevant, challenging and enjoyable curriculum for all pupils, as well as using it as a tool to enhance learning throughout the wider curriculum.

Computing as a standalone subject has a number of key components, each of which we aim to teach and fully instil the value of amongst our pupils. These can be categorised as:

  • Computer science – Pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.

  • Information technology – Pupils are equipped to create programs, systems and a range of content in order to develop products and solutions.

  • Digital literacy – Pupils are taught to use, access and express oneself through digital technology, including a critical understanding of technology’s impact on the individual and society, at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.


In addition, we firmly believe in the importance of delivering a high quality E-Safety curriculum alongside the core values of computer science, information technology and digital literacy. As technology develops, so does the need for a better understanding of how to use it in a responsible manner. The education of pupils in E-Safety is therefore essential to ensure children are equipped with the skills to recognise risks online, to be critically aware of the materials and content they access online, along with guidance on how to accurately validate information accessed via the internet.
