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. Our aim is to develop individuals who have a flair for the ever-increasing digital age we live in and to cultivate a clear awareness of online safety. Individuals will develop the ability to manipulate programmes for a purpose and to use the resources available to them with increasing confidence.
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.
