Computing

Curriculum Intent

At St Adrian’s we want all our pupils to:

  • learn about the science and foundations of computing to develop understanding
  • develop skills to produce purposeful and creative content for a range of applications, and know that there are many careers they can aspire to by acquiring these skills
  • be competent, respectful, responsible and safe users of technology, discerning of its content, so that they have the opportunity to participate positively in a global community.   

Our aim is to deliver fun and engaging computing lessons within a meaningful context that develop creativity, resilience and problem-solving and critical thinking skills. We look to embed knowledge and use of technology across the curriculum where it can enhance the learning experience, or be used to ensure learning opportunities are made accessible to every child.
