In line with the 2014 National Curriculum for Computing, our aim is to provide a high-quality computing education, which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world through digital means. Lessons in KS3 consist of one hour a week and, if taken as an option in KS4, raise to three hours per week. We recognise that our pupils’ lives, both socially and vocationally, will increasingly take place within a digital medium and therefore, this subject is seen as vital in developing a broad range of skills that will enable not only digital competence but also ensure an understanding of how to be a responsible online citizen. There are 5 main topic areas within the curriculum “Theme 1 – Architecture”, “Theme 2 – Networking”, “Theme 3 – Programming”, “Theme 4 – Data Representation”, “Theme 5 – Software Components”.
