We aim to prepare our children for a rapidly changing world through the use of technology at St Jude’s.

Our Computing Curriculum is designed to enable the children to use computational thinking and creativity to further understand our world, and prepare them effectively for secondary school and beyond.

In computing, we are clear that Intent is the knowledge and skills the children acquire in our curriculum, which builds towards clearly defined end points.

Our curriculum design has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology.

At the core of our computing curriculum 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, we intend for our children to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.

We aim to ensure 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.
