The New Computing curriculum has deep links with mathematics, science, 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 technology, 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 ‘2Code’ 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 and as active participants in a digital world.
Our Vision for Computing
At St Clement’s we endeavor for all pupils to be confident users and controllers of I.T in our continuously developing technological society. To fulfill this need, we will provide pupils with a wide range of opportunities to develop and apply their Computing knowledge in a creative and confident way in a secure environment. We also aim to use Computing to support and enhance learning throughout the curriculum. We encourage the children to use what they have learned in class, both in school and in the outside world. We take Online Safety very seriously and children throughout the school are taught how to use technology appropriately.
To support the teaching of Computing at St Clement’s we use ‘Purple Mash’ for supporting schemes of work.
