The Computing Curriculum helps children make safe, informed choices about how they use,
communicate, create and problem solve with digital technology and technological devices.
We aim to allow your child to build their "knowledge, understanding and skills for continuous
lifelong learning". (SWGL 2013)
All children are, therefore, encouraged to be computational thinkers: to look at problems in detail
(decompose); to explore systematic solutions (logical reasoning); to write instructions (algorithms);
try out and fix (debugging) and evaluate.

Each term your child will develop their skills and understanding so they can…"think critically,
develop ideas, behave safely and participate responsibly in our digital world." (SWGfL 2018)
