Computing

Computing is embedded into curriculum teaching and learning to allow learners to be creative, to work collaboratively and to solve problems. Computing also ensures that learners become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology(ICT) – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

Computing has deep links with Maths, Science, and Design and Technology. In Computing lessons, children are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Children are taught to choose and use hardware and software to meet their needs and enhance their learning experience. ICT resources are available for wherever and whenever they are appropriate within any area of the curriculum.

Children are also taught to be safe digital citizens through the use of our learning platform and a comprehensive e-safety curriculum.
