Our vision for teaching computing is centred around : Digital Literacy-We aim to equip our children with the essential digital literacy skills they need to navigate an increasingly technology-driven society. This includes fostering a deep understanding of the principles of computer science, as well as the responsible and ethical use of technology.

  • Problem-Solving: Computing offers a unique opportunity to develop problem-solving skills. We encourage our pupils to approach challenges with a computational mindset, enabling them to tackle real-world issues in an analytical and systematic manner.

  • Creativity and Innovation: Computing provides a canvas for creativity and innovation. Our goal is to inspire pupils to explore and create with technology, fostering a sense of curiosity and an ability to invent and adapt to an ever-changing technological landscape.

The intent behind our computing curriculum is that we believe that computing is not only a tool for innovation but also a gateway to understanding and participating in the modern digital world. Our computing curriculum is meticulously designed to realise our vision and empower our pupils with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in the digital age. The curriculum's key features include:

  • Foundations of Computer Science: We provide a strong foundation in computer science, which includes understanding algorithms, coding, and logical thinking. This enables our pupils to grasp the fundamental principles that underpin modern technology.

  • Practical Application: Our computing lessons are hands-on, ensuring pupils apply their knowledge to real-world projects. This practical experience not only reinforces learning but also allows pupils to see the direct impact of technology in their lives.

  • Online Safety and Digital Citizenship: We prioritise the safety and ethical use of technology. Pupils are educated on responsible online behaviour and how to protect themselves in the digital realm, ensuring they navigate the online world with confidence and security.

  • Interdisciplinary Learning: We encourage cross-disciplinary connections, integrating computing with other subjects to demonstrate how technology is woven into various aspects of our lives, from mathematics to the arts.

  • Preparation for Future Careers: We believe that computing is a gateway to future career opportunities. Our curriculum prepares pupils for a range of career paths in technology, fostering skills that are highly sought after in the job market.
