The Computing Subject Leader and all staff to deliver a high quality computing education.
Computational thinking – the ability to solve problems in a creative, logical and collaborative way – is developed through repeated programming opportunities and opportunities to build understanding and apply the concepts of computer science.
Pupils become responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
Pupils have a growing awareness of how technology is used in the world around them and of the benefits that it provides. They are supported to evaluate and use information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies.
Opportunities for communication and collaboration develop understanding of the purposes for using technology and these are used to bring together home and school learning experiences.
Technology is used imaginatively to engage all learners and widen their learning opportunities,
Pupils have access to a variety of devices and resources and are encouraged to reflect on the choices they make to use them.
We expect our pupils to:
Develop computing skills, knowledge and understanding
Develop an understanding of the wider applications of computer systems and communication technology in society
Develop independent and logical thinking through reasoning, decision making and problem solving
Develop imagination and creativity
Work independently and collaboratively
