KS1 and KS2 Computing POS

Key Stage 1
Pupils should be taught to:

 understand what algorithms are, how they are implemented as programs on digital 
devices, and that programs execute by following a sequence of instructions
 write and test simple programs
 use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs
 organise, store, manipulate and retrieve data in a range of digital formats
 communicate safely and respectfully online, keeping personal information private,
and recognise common uses of information technology beyond school.

Key Stage 2
Pupils should be taught to:
 design and write programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or 
simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller 
 use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and 
various forms of input and output; generate appropriate inputs and predicted 
outputs to test programs
 use logical reasoning to explain how a simple algorithm works and to detect and 
correct errors in algorithms and programs
 understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide 
multiple services, such as the world-wide web; and the opportunities they offer for 
communication and collaboration
 describe how internet search engines find and store data; use search engines 
effectively; be discerning in evaluating digital content; respect individuals and 
intellectual property; use technology responsibly, securely and safely
 select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a 
range of digital devices to accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, 
evaluating and presenting data and information.
