Computing

Intent

Our aim at Rudston is to provide a high-quality computing education, which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand their ever-changing world.

The curriculum will teach children key knowledge about how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed.

In their time at Rudston, children will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work), information technology (using computer systems
to store, retrieve and send information) and digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully).

Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners. Our intention is that pupils have every opportunity available to enjoy the subject area and to be challenged in this key, fast-growing area of life.

Our ambition is for them to leave us with advanced personal skills, in order to be able to safely use technology and use it as an educational vehicle to apply to their entire education and future
life.
