In a rapidly changing world, computing is an essential skill which will play a pivotal part in our children's lives. We want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly, and safely. We aim to provide a high-quality computing education that equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. 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, 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.
