“Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you just want to pursue a career in the 21st century, basic computer programming is an essential skill to learn.”

Stephen Hawking

Computing: Our Intent for the subject.


Our aim is to provide high-quality Computing education which equips pupils to become responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology, whilst keeping themselves safe online.  Our curriculum builds upon pupils’ deep knowledge of mathematics, science and design technology to help them learn how digital systems work and how to use this knowledge through programming. In lessons, we intertwine computer science, programming and digital literacy to ensure a broad and balanced curriculum.  Through this, we encourage all children to be curious, collaborative, inspired and resilient, whilst raising awareness of common areas of danger and ensuring that children are equipped to face modern challenges such as hidden traps and subterfuge. These essential life skills ensure that our children are ready to access their Key Stage 3 learning and beyond.

 How it fits within our school vision.

Our school vision is rooted in the Christian faith. As a proud Church of England school, our vision is underpinned by the Church of England’s vision for education. This vision identifies four interlinking aims for all our pupils and, at its heart, lies LOVE (Luke 10:27).

It is this LOVE for God, for our neighbours and ourselves, that forms our Christian foundation to underpin all that we do.

School Vision Statement

At Walter Evans we believe in a broad and balanced curriculum where all subjects are valued. A broad and balanced curriculum will equip our children with a breadth of knowledge and skills in all areas of the curriculum. We aim for our pupils to ‘Persevere, be curious and inspired through their learning’.
