Building Each Other Up in Love and Learning

Computing

A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. We strive to ensure that our pupils become digitally literate – able to use, express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

At the core is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation: how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content within their Computing lessons and across the wider school curriculum.

Our ICT experiences are not restricted to desktops, laptops and interactive whiteboards but also tablets, digital cameras, voice recorders, Chromebooks, Lego Education and much more! By the end of Year 6, standards are well above nationally expected levels and children can successfully apply skills across the curriculum.
