In computing we aim to develop the mind-set of today’s computer scientist by equipping our children with the skills to participate in a rapidly changing world. The curriculum journey incorporates challenging and engaging topics, giving children the opportunity to develop their capability, creativity, and subject knowledge. Our children will gain the life-skills needed to enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way.
Our vision is that our children will become autonomous, independent users of computing technologies, gaining confidence and enjoyment from their activities. Our computing lessons will see our children develop creativity, resilience, problem-solving and critical thinking skills, whilst becoming digitally literate and competent end-users of technology. Our children will gain a breadth of experience to develop their understanding of themselves as individuals within their community but also as members of a wider global community and as responsible digital citizens.
The curriculum allows our children to use technology effectively, safely, and responsibly, and to understand how technology is developed and constantly redeveloped into new and exciting tools. Computing lessons will provide opportunities for our children to become resilient learners who can recover from mistakes and effectively solve problems, helping them to become life-long learners and preparing them for their future. Our children will be able to express themselves, develop their ideas through, information and communication technology at a suitable level for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
