Computing is taught as a discrete subject with links made to other subjects where appropriate. We are lucky to have a class set of Chrome books and Ipads which can be used not only for Computing sessions but across the curriculum.
Our curriculum for Computing ensures that Computing knowledge and skills are built upon progressively as children move through the school. The curriculum is based on the TeachComputing curriculum designed by the National Centre for Computing Education (https://teachcomputing.org/curriculum)
There is a strong focus on programming and developing chidlren's understanding of key concepts and how computers are used in the modern world.
