Vision Statement for Computing
At Christ the King, we clearly understand our responsibility in preparing children for their next stage of education and for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life, helping to lay the foundations so that they can take their place successfully in society and the wider world.
As opportunities in technology-based companies increase, it becomes ever more important that the children are fully computer literate when they leave school.
Computers are now part of everyday life. For most of us, technology is essential to our lives, at home and at work. ‘Computational thinking’ is a skill that children must be taught if they are to be ready for the workplace and able to participate effectively in this ‘digital world’. Our computing curriculum has been revised and developed to equip our pupils with the foundation skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. Now, through the latest programme of study for computing, they learn how computers and computer systems work, design and build programs, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content.
