“We can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done.”
Computing is such a integral part of our everyday lives now that it is hard to imagine how we would manage without mobile phones, the internet, automated banking and ‘Alexa’ turning off our lights!
Technology is used by people of every age and computing is one of the most important parts of a school’s curriculum. The children in our school today are preparing for jobs, many of which don’t yet exist; tomorrow’s technology and the opportunities and challenges it will bring need a population with a deep understanding of computing and the skills to use it safely.
Within our curriculum pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming in applications such as Scratch Jr and Scratch. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs on microprocessors such as Crumble. 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 and responsible participants in a digital world.
