Pupils will explore the three areas of the computing curriculum:
DIGITAL LITERACY (including e-safety) - evaluating digital content, using technology safely, respectfully and responsibly and identifying a range of ways to report concerns.
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY - using technology to create, manipulate and retrieve digital content and present data and information.
COMPUTER SCIENCE - design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals
HOW DOES DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY LINK TO OUR SCHOOL VISION?

Pupils have opportunities to support each other and act safely with courtesy and wisdom whilst online – Love of one another, love of mankind
Pupils understand the opportunities for themselves in wider society and globally – Love of mankind, love of life itself
