Computing Curriculum Intent
Through our computing curriculum at St Simon of England we aim to give our pupils the life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way in order to flourish.
We want our pupils to be able to operate in the workplace of the future and we want them to know the career opportunities that will be open to them if they study computing.
We want children to become autonomous, independent users of computing technologies, gaining confidence and enjoyment from their activities. We want the use of technology to support learning across the entire curriculum and to ensure that our curriculum is accessible to every child.
Not only do we want them to be digitally literate and competent end-users of technology but through our computer science lessons we want them to develop creativity, resilience, problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
We want our pupils to have a breadth of experience to develop their understanding of themselves as individuals within the community but also as members of a wider global community and as responsible digital citizens.
