A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
At Holy Family we aim to offer a challenging and engaging computing curriculum, which is consolidated across all curriculum areas. This is delivered with modern technology providing the children with the opportunity to learn, improve and refine computing skills which are key in today’s society.
Computing is an advanced, fast-paced, essential subject, where knowledge and skills are highly transferable in the real-life context. Children will continue to develop their understanding of this subject as they progress through education and life. We put the foundations in place to allow them to do so!
