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.

Safer Internet Day Success!

Both children and parent's engaged with the issues of online e-safety. Throughout the school classes focused on aspects of e-safety and learnt how and whom to report a problem to.

Parent's attended an E-safety Presentation led by our Computing Subject Leader in order to make families aware of the online e-safety issues there children face today. Moreover, an opportunity was given at the end of the presentation to install free parent control software 'K9 protection' on any devices that were brought.

Furthermore, the success of the day was  reported in the local Wakefield Express newspaper to highlight the importance of the e-safety issues faced by our children and families.

Below is a link that really brings to home the importance of e-safety:
