Nelson Computing Intent

Our exciting computing curriculum aims to equip our students with the skills they need to understand and change the world around them using computational thinking and creativity. By learning about computer science, our pupils develop a solid foundation in the principles of information and computation, as well as how digital systems work and how to use programming to put this knowledge into action.



We believe in encouraging our pupils to think critically and solve problems in computational terms. That's why we give our students plenty of opportunities to write computer programs to tackle different challenges. We also want our pupils to be confident, creative and responsible users of technology. With our help, they can use information and communication technology to express themselves, develop their ideas and access all kinds of information within the boundaries of the law.


Our computing curriculum is designed to help our pupils make connections between computing, mathematics, science and design and technology. By doing so, we give them insights into both natural and artificial systems, which can help them better understand the world around them.

We're excited to be part of our pupils' computing journeys and look forward to working with them to develop their skills and knowledge. Together, we can help our children become confident and competent users of technology, ready to take on the challenges of the future.
