Computing is changing the lives of everyone.
Through teaching, we equip children to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. Computing aims to enable pupils to use computational thinking and creativity not only in the area of computer science, but also in cross-curricular way, linking to area of Mathematics, Science, English and many others. At the core of the study of computing, however, is computer science, in which pupils learn to study and manipulate information and computation, researching how digital systems are effectively structured and creating and debugging programs in a range of context. Alongside this, pupils will be supported in becoming safe and digitally literate individuals who can develop their ideas through the medium of ICT.
The curriculum is designed around 4 strands: Computing Systems and Networks; Creating Media; Programming; Data and Information and is supported by planning and resources provided by the Teach Computing platform.
