Computing Curriculum 2014

The school firmly believes that technology enhances education.

With the implementation of the new National Curriculum in September 2014, ICT changes to Computing. What will this look like for our pupils and what are we doing to prepare for it?


What is Computing?

According to the new National Curriculum, it is.
A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.Building on this knowledge and understanding, our pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
