Computing

Subject Intent

What is our intent for all children to achieve in this subject?

At St. Mark’s, our computing curriculum is designed to equip children with the skills and understanding to live in a technological world; this includes being able to use a variety of computer software and coding programmes.   Our computing curriculum equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.

We aim for all pupils to become digitally literate and we give them the means to be able to use and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology, with a focus on e-safety, at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world. It is our intention to teach a range of skills that are transferable in a variety of other subjects, as well as the children’s wider life outside of school.  We want to develop children’s experience and understanding of ICT, preparing then for jobs for the future.
