Computing Curriculum

 

A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.

 

Computing has deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.

 

Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

Investing in Learning at Pinders Primary School

At Pinders Primary School we have, and continue to invest in technology. We have recently upgraded many of our boards and computing facilities to engage our pupils, many of which have English as an additional language. Learn more about the SMART solutions and Elementary technology enabled us to transform our classrooms into active learning environments by watching the video below. "I've got a particular passion for children that have got barriers to learning and it's those children that often really benefit from the technology," says Lorna Kemplay, Head Teacher.

We are lucky to have two laptop trollies and two iPad trolley to use in our computing lessons and to help bring other subjects to life. We also have class cameras, interactive screens, visualizers, and at least one desktop computer in every classroom.
