Computing prepares pupils to participate in a rapidly changing world in which work and other activities are increasingly transformed by access to varied and developing technology.

Pupils use ICT tools to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsibly, creatively and with discrimination. They learn how to employ ICT to enable rapid access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of people, communities and cultures.

Increased capability in the use of ICT promotes initiative and independent learning, with pupils being able to make informed judgements about when and where to use ICT to best effect, and to consider its implications for home and work both now and in the future.

Our Computing Intent

We aim to build a computing curriculum that develops pupils’ learning and results in their acquisition of knowledge of the world around them and information on how to live safely in an increasingly digital society. 

The curriculum will be broad and balanced and allow for progression in the strands of Computer Science, Digital Literacy and Information Technology. Our children have access to appropriate hardware (computers, tablets, programmable equipment) and software to develop knowledge and skills of digital systems and their applications. They have access to key computing language and meanings in order to understand and readily apply in written and verbal responses. Children have the opportunity to explore and respond to key issues such as digital communication, cyberbullying, online safety and security at an age appropriate level. Children will work collaboratively and practically to investigate and experiment; being able to explain the processes they have taken.

Our aim is for all children to enjoy their learning in Computing, be confident and responsible users of Information Technology and  be well-prepared for the next stage in their education.
