A high-quality computing education equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science and design technology. In Foundation the children learn how to operate and program simple technology equipment, recognising a range of uses technology has within school and at home. They use simple graphing equipment to sort groups into similarities and differences.
By the end Key Stage 1 the children write and test simple programs using algorithms. They learn to debug a program and correct errors. They would use sound, images and text in simple presentations and create a sequence of images to create a short animation. The children have an understanding that there are a variety of tools in a graphics package and are able to explain the reasons why they use specific tools.
Throughout the school the children learn about E-Safety and being aware of responsible internet use. They discuss how to use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
