Computing teaching will ensure children gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds. The skills taught through computing will allow children to further develop problem-solving, think about design systems and understand the power and limits of human intelligence. Computing is a practical subject, in which invention and resourcefulness are encouraged. The ideas of computing are applied to real-world systems and ensure children are better prepared for today’s world and the future.
At Sauncey Wood, computing is taught using the scheme ‘Switched on’ throughout the school. Staff support children to understand and become confident in using a range of technology to enrich their learning. Computing offers a wide range of opportunities for cross-curricular links which are used to their full potential.
