Computer Science

We aim to prepare our learners for their future by giving them the opportunities to gain knowledge and develop skills that will equip them for an ever-changing digital world. Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in students' lives therefore, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. We want our pupils to be creators not consumers and our broad curriculum encompasses computer science, information communication technology and digital literacy. We want our pupils to understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a school we model positive use. Building knowledge in this subject will allow pupils to effectively demonstrate their learning through creative use of technology. We recognise that technology can allow pupils to share their learning in creative ways. We also understand the accessibility opportunities technology can provide for our pupils. Our curriculum is balanced with opportunities for pupils to apply their knowledge creatively which will in turn help our pupils become independent skilful digital citizens.
