Through our computing curriculum we aim to give our pupils the life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way in order to flourish. We want our pupils to be able to operate in the 21st century workplace and we want them to know the career opportunities that will be open to them if they study computing.  We aim for children to become autonomous, independent users of computing technologies, gaining confidence and enjoyment from their activities, using technology to support learning across the entire curriculum and to ensure that our curriculum is accessible to every child.  Not only do we want them to be digitally literate and competent end-users of technology, but through our computing lessons we want them to develop creativity, resilience and problem-solving and critical thinking skills.  Through a breadth of experience, pupils will develop an understanding of themselves as individuals within their community but also as members of a wider global community and as responsible digital citizens.
