Computing at All Saints intends to develop ‘thinkers of the future’ through a modern, ambitious and relevant education in Computing. We want to equip pupils to succeed in the digital world by using computational thinking and creativity. It is important to us that children understand how to use the ever-changing technology to express and challenge themselves, as tool for learning and as a means to push their generation forward into the future.
We want our children to develop as respectful, responsible and confident users of technology, who simultaneously having a good understanding of the positive applications and specific risks associated with being online. One of our key aims is for our children to be aware of the measures that can be taken to keep themselves and others safe online. Therefore, our computing curriculum is designed to balance acquiring broad and deep knowledge, alongside opportunities to apply skills in various digital contexts. Beyond teaching Computing explicitly, we will give children the opportunity to apply and develop what they have learnt cross their wider learning in the curriculum.
