COMPUTING

At Leigh St Peter’s CE Primary, we aim to create a high-quality computing curriculum which equips our pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and use technology in their daily lives.

Aims:

The national curriculum for Design and Technology aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.
  • Can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.
  • Can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
  • Are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
