In our Computing Curriculum we aspire to give children life skills that enable them to confidently use a range of technology effectively in a socially responsible way, using computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links across the curriculum, especially with mathematics, science and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems.
The core of computing is Programming, in which pupils are taught the principles of Computing systems and networks, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming and coding. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create media, 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.
