Computing is exciting at Wyborne!

Our belief is that Wyborne’s curriculum gives students opportunities to gain life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way. We want children to become independent users of computing technologies, gaining confidence and enjoyment from their activities.

Computing at Wyborne brings joy and pleasure and is accessible to all children, at all levels.

Not only do we want children to be digitally literate and competent users of technology, but through our computer science lessons we want them to develop creativity, resilience, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Children are able to apply their skills in other areas of the curriculum. Teachers are enthusiastic and always keen to improve their own subject knowledge, especially with the continual advances in technology and computer programming.

We plan exciting and engaging units of work with reference to the INTENT documents, which inspire and develop skills and knowledge in cohesive sequences of lessons. Computing includes three strands, repeated over the years to enable progression of skills and deepening of understanding.

Computing Aspects include Computer Science; Information Technology and Digital Literacy.
