Computers are now part of everyday life. For most of us, technology is essential to our lives, at home and at work. ‘Computational thinking’ is a skill children must be taught if they are to be ready for the workplace and able to participate effectively in this digital world.

The National Curriculum for computing has been developed to equip young people with the foundational skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. Through the programme of study for computing, they will learn how computers and computer systems work, they will design and build programs, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content. They will develop a range of skills including: using email, typing, saving, printing, taking and uploading photos and videos, internet searches, coding, Online Safety and giving presentations.

Computing is a discrete lesson within the curriculum but technology is used to support and enrich a range of subject areas. The school has portable devices to use in classrooms and where possible there is access to the College Computer and Mac Suites.
