Computing at Manor Oak

 

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 Manor Oak we use the Rising Stars ‘Switched on Computing’ scheme where pupils have the opportunity to become computer programmers in different real life contexts.‚Äč
