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 technology.
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.
Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas using different technologies.
At Bishop Bridgeman, we aim to ensure that all pupils:
Can understand and apply the principles and concepts of computer science,
Can analyse problems in computation terms and have experience of writing computer programs.
Can evaluate and apply information technology.
Are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of ICT.
Online Safety is very important to Bishop Bridgeman and we believe that it should be a running theme throughout all lessons. All pupils, 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.
