At St. Gregory’s Primary School we aim to deliver high quality computing education which equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to become confident, competent and discerning users of digital technology; to prepare them for participation in a rapidly changing world.
Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology. 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.
