Computing – Our intent, aims and concepts
The study of computing opens up a world of possibilities- the world of the future. Children develop a fascination and understanding of the world ahead of them in which AI, robotics and online devices enable a myriad of possibilities. An essential level of computing skills (digital literacy) is vital to ensure that all our children are able to thrive safely within modern society, accessing opportunities that transform access to information and interaction with the world around them. By developing a deep understanding of computational skills and knowledge through our curriculum, we want our pupils to understand the possibilities of technology, and how it can help to solve problems and develop society for the better.
By becoming confident in their digital literacy, computational and digital citizenship knowledge we intend this study of computing to:
• Enable children to understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
• Analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
• Evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems to become responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
• Be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
