Computing

Technology is changing the lives of everyone. Through teaching computing, we equip children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. 
It is our intention to enable children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to be discerning consumers and creators of information in all of its forms. Computational thinking is a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them develop this skill in all curriculum areas.

 

Aims

The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programmes in order to solve such problems.
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
