Computing Subject Leader
We live in a technological age and it is important that children acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for them to succeed as a 21st century citizen. Computers are used to support all aspects of the curriculum ; in addition to the suite of 16 networked computers the school also has a trolleys of 15 netbooks and 15 tablets to support children in their classrooms. All classrooms have interactive whiteboards and children are taught the importance of E safety throughout the school. The school also makes good use of its website and learning platform to enable children to share work with parents and the wider community.
Computing is concerned with how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. Pupils studying computing will gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers. Computational thinking provides insights into many areas of the curriculum, and influences work at the cutting edge of a wide range of disciplines.
The focus of the new programme of study undeniably moves towards programming and other aspects of computer science. The introduction also makes clear the three aspects of the computing curriculum: computer science (CS), information technology (IT) and digital literacy (DL).
