Our Computing Learning Journey
Our Vision for Computing
A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. We recognise that in our current age, computing technology develops rapidly and we hope to introduce to our children ways that this technology can do some things more quickly, more efficiently or even more spectacularly than without it. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. We specifically link to aspects of art, music and English and teach research-based lessons in other subjects through the use of computing technology. The very nature of computing and its potential excites children to discover more about the science (or how things work) of computing, and then use it to create simple programs and content. We want our children to become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

We use ©Focus Education to help children develop a set of skills, knowledge and understanding based on the National Curriculum. Over their time in school, children will have the opportunity of learning to:
explore algorithms and programs
practise data retrieving and organising it
use the internet
present work in a variety of multi-media ways.
