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 information and communication technology to express themselves and to develop their ideas – and prepares them for a future as active participants in a digital world, including the work place.

Through our teaching of Computing at ORCS we aim for children:

  • To understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • To analyse problems in computational terms
  • To write computer programs in order to solve problems
  • To evaluate and use information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, to solve problems analytically
  • To be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
