Computing

Computing is changing the lives of everyone. Through teaching computing we equip children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. We enable them to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating and effective way. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners.

As the aims of Computing are to equip children with the skills necessary to use technology to become independent learners, the teaching style that we adopt is as active and practical as possible. While at times we do give children direct instruction on how to use hardware or software, the main emphasis of our teaching in Computing is for individuals or groups of children to use computers to help them in whatever they are trying to study.

The aims of Computing are to enable children:
  • ´╗┐to develop Computing capability in finding, selecting and using information;
  • to monitor and control events both real and imaginary;
  • to apply hardware and software to creative and appropriate uses of information;
  • to use Computing for effective and appropriate communication;
  • to apply their Computing skills to develop their language and communication skills;
  • to explore their attitudes towards Computing and its value to them and society in general.
