Computing in action

At the heart of our Computing curriculum is equipping children with the foundational skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. Computing is a practical and creative subject, in which invention and resourcefulness are encouraged. Through the curriculum, children will work together in learning how computers and computer systems work; they will design and build programs, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content. Ultimately, our aim is to ensure children are ready for the workplace and able to participate effectively, confidently and safely in this digital world.
