Computing

A high quality computing education equips children to use computational thinking to understand and change the world! Computing has links with Maths, Science and Design and Technology. The core of computing is Computer Science. Children are taught 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. Computing also ensures that our pupils become digitally literate –  they are able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology.


The Beacon has a clear vision for Computing which is - We use computational thinking and creativity to solve problems and prepare for the future. We are digitally literate and active participants in a digital world.
