Our Beliefs

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 and technology, 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. Building 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 through technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

Our intention is that children will leave our school with a positive mindset towards technology, and they will be confident enough in themselves to be able to solve the challenges changing technology can bring. Through our computing education, students at Studley Green will learn to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly in the digital world. In addition, our students leave with a sound understanding of the basics of Computer Science, to be further developed in secondary school.

Our computing curriculum

The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology

At Studley Green, we use the Teach Computing Curriculum, alongside digital literacy resources from Common Sense Education and Be Internet Legends. For more on digital literacy, please see the online safety section of our keeping children safe page.
