Computing

“The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn’t think they could learn before, and so in a sense is all about potential.” 

                                                                                                                                                        Steve Ballmer 

At St. George’s we want to provide the children with rich deep learning experiences that balance all aspects of computing.

 With technology playing such a significant role in society today, we believe ‘Computational thinking’ is a skill children must be taught if they are to be able to participate effectively and safely in this digital world. A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use 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.

At St George’s, we teach all three elements of computing: Computer Science, Information Technology and Digital Literacy in which pupils are introduced to a wide range of technology, including laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards, allowing them to continually practice and improve the skills they learn. This ensures they become digitally literate so that they are able to express themselves and develop their ideas through information and computer technology– at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
