Computing: Our Intent for the subject.


Our aim is to provide high-quality Computing education which equips pupils to use computational thinking, curiosity and creativity to understand and change the world, whilst keeping themselves safe online.  Our curriculum intertwines underpinning computer science, programming, digital literacy and e-safety to teach pupils about how digital systems work and how to use IT safely. Through computing lessons, our pupils will develop their problem-solving, curiosity, creativity, resilience and critical thinking skills. They will also be made aware of common areas of danger and methods to stop hidden traps or subterfuge. Pupils are challenged within these lessons and through this; they develop their confidence as digital learners. These essential life skills ensure that the children a ready to access their Key Stage 3 learning and assists them in becoming life-long learners.

 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.
