The computing curriculum can be considered as being built from three strands:
- Computer Science: the scientific and practical study of computation; what can be computed , how to compute it, and how computation may be applied to the solution of problems.
- Information Technology: concerned with how computers and telecommunications equipment work, and how they may be applied to the storage, retrieval, transmission and manipulation of data.
- Digital Literacy: the ability to effectively, responsibly, safely and critically navigate, evaluate and create digital artefacts using a range of digital technologies.
Our scheme of work covers all these aspects and equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. It develops pupils understanding of programming and computer science while also providing opportunities for creative and collaborative work.
E-safety units are incorporated into each term so that children learn how to access digital information and use digital media safely and appropriately, both at school and at home. Our pupils will understand the implications of technology for individuals and society as they become digitally literate.
