Computing at Addison
Computing at Addison is implemented across different parts of the curriculum. We provide a wide range of technological experiences using facilities such as desktops, laptops, iPads, different applications, Beebots, and well-known software programmes. A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing is a cross-curricular subject and is linked to mathematics and science. Children will be taught computer science which is the core of computing. They will be taught the principle of information and computation. This will enable them to understand how digital systems are used and apply this knowledge to programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing allows the pupils to become digitally literate-able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology.
We aim to ensure that all pupils:
- can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
- can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
- can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
- are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
- understand the importance of staying safe online
