A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems.
The core of computing 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. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information technology.
At the heart of our computing curriculum and all work completed on computers and portable technology, we ensure the highest level of internet safety. All staff and pupils comply with our Internet Safety Policy and the SLT team regularly monitor internet activity through our SECURAS monitoring programme.
