In computing, we aim to inspire pupils to be active participants in an ever changing world increasingly transformed by technology. At the core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of computing: how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.
The children will learn how computers and computer systems work, they will design and build programs, investigate images and data and create a range of content. In this subject area, there is a clear shift from children just as users of technology, to children using technology as creators and future innovators, too. A crucial element of learning in this area is ensuring that our children know how to use the internet and other technologies safely and responsibly through our online safety curriculum.
We also aim to enhance and support learning in other areas of the curriculum through the use of interactive learning tools such as MyMaths and BugClub.
