We aim to provide a high-quality computing education that equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.
Computing has strong links to other subjects and is also used to support learning throughout the school.
Pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world. Pupils are taught to be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
Our curriculum has 5 key areas:
- Digital Literacy
- E Safety
Not only will each year group have specific computing lessons in areas such as programming and control but the the use of technology within other areas of the curriculum is encouraged. We link the creation of digital books with topic areas, or the use of blogs within literacy. We use a wide variety of digital tools such as laptops; computers and lego robots
Our staff are passionate about the use of technology for communication, creation and collaboration throughout the curriculum.
