Computing

The Importance of Computing within the Curriculum

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.

An important part of the curriculum is e-safety, which is integral to the computing curriculum that we teach. We also raise awareness through Safer Internet Day which is an annual event, usually falling in February.

At Woodseaves we follow the  Scheme of work produced by the e-Learning and  Information Management Service (eLIM), which seeks to develop innovative, engaging, effective and safe use of technology.
