The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
- Can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
- Can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
- Are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
Our scheme of work covers all these aspects of the curriculum and equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. It develops pupils understanding of programming and computer science while also providing opportunities for creative and collaborative work.
