Pupils learn to use technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. In Computer Science, pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.
Early use of digital technology improves children's language skills and promotes social development and creativity. Having a deeper understanding of computing also helps students to be better equipped when tackling Maths, Science and Engineering problems in STEM classes further down the line.
We teach them the knowledge and skills that we believe will enable them to make sense of and contribute to their world. Increasingly that requires the use and understanding of computers. Even those of us who have no direct access to or need of computers will be interacting with governments and businesses that do.
Computing has deep links with Mathematics, Science, and Design and Technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems.
We also teach about E-Safety and the importance of online safety that all children should be aware of when using computers.
