Our aim is to provide high-quality Computing education which equips pupils to use computational thinking, curiosity and creativity to understand and change the world, whilst keeping themselves safe online. Our curriculum intertwines underpinning computer science, programming, digital literacy and e-safety to teach pupils about how digital systems work and how to use IT safely. Through computing lessons, our pupils will develop their problem-solving, curiosity, creativity, resilience and critical thinking skills. They will also be made aware of common areas of danger and methods to stop hidden traps or subterfuge. Pupils are challenged within these lessons and through this; they develop their confidence as digital learners. These essential life skills ensure that the children a ready to access their Key Stage 3 learning and assists them in becoming life-long learners.
At our school, we strive to provide a high-quality computing education that equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Our computing curriculum builds on deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology. We ensure it enables our children to provides insights into both natural and artificial systems.
The core of our computing is computer science, in which our pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, our pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
Our computing curriculum also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology.
