"What a computer is to me is the most remarkable tool that we have ever come up with. It is the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds." Steve Jobs
Computing is about more than just computers. It gives users the opportunity to be creative and to draw links from maths, science, art and design technology. Our Computing delivery enables pupils to learn how digital systems work and how to change content through programming. Pupils are encouraged to develop their computational thinking skills through planning, testing and de-bugging systems. We want to fully equip our pupils with the skills, knowledge and understanding to be digitally literate and technologically capable in their future workplace.
At the start of each term and throughout each Computing unit, teachers deliver key e-safety messages to their class. This helps our pupils to become more informed online users. They are better equipped to deal with incidents (should they arise) they understand what is acceptable and non-acceptable online behaviour and know who their trusted adults are in the home and at school.
