All pupils at St Mary’s Junior School have the right to a high-quality computing education which equips them to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. With technology playing such a significant role in society today, we believe ‘Computational thinking’ (which begins with everyday problem solving and questioning - how can a computer can help with this?) is a skill children must be taught, if they are to be able to participate effectively and safely in today’s digital world.
At St Mary’s, the core of computing is Computer Science in which pupils are introduced to a wide range of technology, including laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards, allowing them to continually practice and improve the skills they learn. While this encourages the children to develop their ideas through information and computer technology– at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world. It also ensures they become digitally literate and are able to express themselves while being respectful of others through our values of love, respect and friendship.
