At Nursery Hill, Computing is taught throughout each year.

 

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.

 

Computing involves four different areas. These are:

  • Programming

  • Data handling and multimedia

  • Digital literacy and online technologies

  • Online safety

There are a number of objectives for each area, which change depending at what stage your child is at:
