Computing

‘Alan Turing gave us a mathematical model of digital computing that has completely withstood the test of time. He gave us a very, very clear description that was truly prophetic’ George Dyson

Purpose of study 

Our school offers a high-quality computing education that develops pupils’ computational thinking whereby pupils learn how to recognise problems and approach them in a controlled and systematic way. Our curriculum inspires pupils’ creativity and curiosity of the forever changing world of technology. Through our teaching of computing, we encourage pupils to explore and use various forms of information technology and develop their computer science skills to support problem solving. Our computing curriculum actively encourages pupils to become digitally literate by enabling them to express themselves and develop their ideas whilst also highlighting the importance of being safe and responsible technology users. Computing enables pupils to be active participants in a digital world and prepares them for future career opportunities.

Aims

Our school’s computing curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science  linked to yearly outcomes.
  • Can analyse and solve computational problems, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs using algorithms. 
  • Can evaluate information technology, including new or unfamiliar programs through making links to the wider world of technology.
  • Are responsible and safe users who fully understand the impact of their own and others’ actions whilst using the internet.
  •  Are competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

 

Organisation

  • We have sets of iPads and laptop computers that allow computing to be taught flexibly in the classrooms
  • Classes are also encouraged to use various other technologies within their classrooms.
  • All classes are given the opportunity to use the class set of iPads to support learning in all areas of the curriculum, not just computing.
