Computing

“Computing is important because we are the next generation and the next generation will need more technological knowledge and skills than today’s generation. Learning Computing gives us a headstart.”    Emmett

” I enjoy computing because I like problem solving and working the steps involved in coding”    Dhilan

Technology is part of everyday life and for most of us, is essential to our lives at home and at work. At St John Fisher CVA , we learn vital Computing skills and knowledge as well as ensuring technology is embedded throughout the curriculum.

The aims of the Computing Curriculum are to equip the future generations with the necessary skills for adult life and employment within the ever-changing technological environment we live in. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is vital in achieving this, therefore here at St John Fisher CVA, we have ensured our Computing curriculum provides opportunities where children:

• understand the ethical guidelines of using the internet safely, valuing their own identity,

• appreciate and respect advances in technology to enable them to reflect on experiences when learning about the world around them,

• actively support each other in challenging problem solving situations where design, programming and construction is essential.
