Computing at Christ Church
Purpose of Study
A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. 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.
Online Safety at Christ Church
Every Year Group completes a unit of work on e-safety at the start of the school year. The children are introduced to age appropriate information about how to keep themselves and other safe online. We also support our parents and carers in understanding how to keep their children safe online through online safety workshops.
