"I think it’s fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we’ve ever created. They’re tools of communication, they’re tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their use.” 

Bill Gates

In our schools, our computing curriculum aims to equip children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.

Our units of study follow the ‘Teach Computing’ programme which is a resource offered by The National Centre for Computing Education, a government-funded initiative.

Children learn to use technology purposefully and evaluate and apply skills to solve problems. Children are also taught how to use technology safely and respectfully in this ever-changing world. Online Safety is also the topic for assemblies, lessons and special days throughout the year.

Computing has cross-curricular links and can be embedded into many areas of learning and in our creative curriculum themes. Children will be taught the principles of information and computation; how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.

Our progression map for computing ensures that children at our schools develop the skills to become digitally literate- expressing themselves through information and communication technology – ready for them to become active participants in the digital world.
