Computing

A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

Computing Statement

In St Oswald's, we follow a scheme of work that has been tailored to our requrements by MGL. We are fortunate enough to have a computer suite equipt with both desktop PCs and MACs. We also have access to a whole class set of iPads and additional iPads for support groups. 

Everyday we work with ICT so it is important we are equipped with the right skills. Each class is timetabled a slot to use the computer suite and also use the class set of iPads. 

Each year group follows tailored plans created by MGL to cover the requirements of the National Curriculum. These plans cover the strands of: Online safety, Programming, Handling Data, Multimedia and Technology in our lives.
