At Bishop Bridgeman, our high-quality computing education equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. The curriculum 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 our children 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, children are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that children 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. and visits.

Online Safety is very important to Bishop Bridgeman and we believe that it should be a running theme throughout all lessons. All children, through all year groups, are taught to use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private, recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour and to identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns whilst online. Please take a look at our online safety newsletter below.

Programme of Study:
We follow the programme of study set out in the National Curriculum, which ensures that all children can build upon their knowledge and skills, as they progress through the year groups.

For further information about our Computing curriculum, please speak to Miss S. Ryan (Computing Curriculum Leader).
