A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. 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.
To this end, computers and other technology are used throughout the school. Each of the 4 classrooms is equipped with either an interactive whiteboard or a touchscreen board. The children make good use of laptop computers with wireless connection to the internet.
Our computing curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:
- can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science;
- can analyse problems in computational terms;
- can evaluate and apply information technology analytically to solve problems;
- are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
