Curriculum Intent

Students live in a digital age, their work environments and lives are ever adapting and technology plays a bigger role than ever. The role of the computing curriculum is to equip students with computational thinking skills and understanding of the digital age so that they can better understand and live in a digital world. Computing ensures that students are digitally literate and able to express themselves digitally. This is important as it prepares them for a job market where computational thinking skills are in demand.Not all students will study Computer Science at KS4 so it is essential that students gain a broad set of skills and an awareness of the subject and its impact on the modern world. Part of this involves developing students’ problem solving abilities, which are transferable skills and impact a variety of other STEM subjects
