Computing Subject Vision
Our intention when planning and delivering the national curriculum, is to provide a high-quality computing education that equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.
Computing ensures that pupils have the knowledge that provides them with the skill set to be digitally literate, able to use, keep themselves safe, express themselves and develop their ideas through computing at a level suitable to help them in the ever-changing world around them.
This is done by:
- Ensuring lessons are actively encouraging and scaffolded to “include” all elements of learning needs and that students are supported and encouraged to try out new methods of Technology, and gain the digital skills they will need for their futures.
- To develop and promote curiosity, fun, and creative skills in all forms of digital media
- To support students and encourage both their digital awareness and social skills both in the classroom and in the outside world.
- To undertake creative projects that involve selecting, using, and combining multiple applications, preferably across a range of devices, to achieve and succeed in their more challenging goals.
