Our computing curriculum aims to provide pupils with a broad experience of computer science, information technology and digital literacy skills and knowledge. Pupils learn how to use technology safely, become critical thinkers and how to be creators of new technology. Our curriculum reflects changes in the national curriculum and the world at large to provide pupils with the technical literacy skills they need to succeed in the digitally driven world of tomorrow. In this way they will be equipped to live ‘life in all its fullness’.
