Computing

 

A creative computing education will equip pupils to use computational thinking and how new and unfamiliar technology are changing our world. Pupils are taught the principles of information and computing though our creative approach using a variety of devices such as iPads and Laptops. Following the guidance outlined in the national curriculum our computing aim is to:

 

  • understand and apply concepts of computer science, including logic, algorithms, data handling and data representation
  • analyse problems in computational terms and have repeated experience of writing computer programs
  • evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically solving problems
  • be responsible, content, confident and creating in using information and communication technology.

 


Pupils are to show exceptional independence and discernment in their use of computing. They will be able to think for themselves and take the initiative in, for example, asking questions, carrying out their own investigations and in working constructively with others. They will show significant levels of originality, imagination or creativity in their understanding and skills within the subject. Appropriate to their age and ability, they will make highly effective use of a wide range of equipment and software. Their knowledge and understanding of how to keep themselves safe when using new technologies will be extremely thorough and comprehensive.
