Computing

Information and Communication Technology became Computing in 2013 and became part of the curriculum from September 2014.

Computing has always been an integral and important part of our curriculum. Children at St. Wilfrid’s have dedicated computing lessons using our excellent ICT suite and interactive facilities.

They also use computing in a range of other lessons to support and enhance their learning. It is vital that children develop research , investigational and many other cross-curricular skills during their studies.

Computing is a fun, exciting and dynamic subject where children learn to use a range of programs and thinking skills and a wide variety of new and innovative equipment including Ipads, Flip Videos and Sound Recorders. Pupils also have access to lunchtime and after school clubs for example the school newspaper and camera club.

The new Computing Curriculum has three strands Computer Science, Digital Literacy and Information Technology. It offers children the chance to study how a computer is built and works, understand networks and the internet, how to program computers, design and create mobile apps, create games and much more. They will be able to use these skills to enhance their learning across the academy.

From Nursery upwards children will begin to understand algorithms and programming and how this all fits into our digital world. They will be both users and creators in this exciting subject.
