Curriculum Overview

At Holy Trinity our high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with all areas of the curriculum, 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. The teaching and learning builds 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, 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.

From the Early Years through to Year 6, the children are encouraged to use a variety of technical equipment ranging from BeeBots and Easi-speak mircrophones to iPads and computers. Each child has access to a unique computer log-in, which enables the children to save their work in individual folders, which ensures that their progression can be tracked as they move up through the school.

With computing being a fast paced and dynamic area of the National Curriculum we are committed to keeping up to date with the newest technologies.
