Through the Computing curriculum, we endeavour to provide our children with the knowledge and skills that will help them to succeed as the technological world changes and develops around them.
Our aims for Computing reflect the aims of the National Curriculum. It is our intention to enable children to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way; learning how to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. It is our belief that all members of our community should be equipped with the digital skills and attitudes needed to negotiate the complexities of and succeed in the rapidly changing digital world that they live in. Not only do we want them to be digitally literate and competent users of technology, but we also want to develop pupils' creativity, resilience and problem-solving skills as ‘computational thinkers’. We want our pupils to realise their role as members of a wider global community and as responsible digital citizens.
Our curriculum enables pupils to explore and develop a range of skills, solving problems and presenting information using different equipment and software. It is our intention that they should leave school computer literate.
