The National Curriculum for Computing states that a high quality computing education equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. At St John's, children will be taught the new demands of Computing and it is our vision that every child will leave school being confident, competent and responsible uses of digital technology. 

The aim of our computing curriculum is that all children will develop the traits necessary to become effective coders and users of technology.  These are outlined below:

Competence in coding for a variety of practical and inventive purposes, including the application of ideas within other subjects. 

The ability to connect with others safely, respectfully, understanding the need to act within the law and with moral and ethical integrity. 

An understanding of the connected nature of devices.

The ability to communicate ideas well by using applications and devices throughout the curriculum. 

The ability to collect, organise and manipulate data effectively. 

Computing is an increasingly important subject ,which is vital to our pupils so that they can play an active part in the constantly changing digit world.  

As children become increasing immersed in technology, we believe that children need to learn, from a young age, how to keep themselves safe online. This very important subject is covered in PSHE lessons during the course of the year as well as in Computing lessons.
