At St. Joseph’s, we aim to provide a high-quality computing curriculum and education which equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity necessary for use in daily and later life. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems.
At the core of the computing curriculum, children are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming of apps, games and e-books.
Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content suitable for a given purpose. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate, so they are able to use and develop their ideas through information and communication technology. All of this, at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
