Computing

What makes an effective Computing student at Weston?

In order to be ready for, and have the skills to fully participate in the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world, the children will become digitally literate, and will be able to express themselves and develop their ideas through the use of information technology whilst also having full awareness of how to be safe online in a responsible, confident and creative way.

About Computing

At Weston, all pupils will be delivered a high quality computing education that equips them with the ability to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.Image result for computing clip art

To enable our children to be ICT ready, they will be able to apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms, and data representation. Alongside this, they will be competent at analysing patterns in computational terms through having repeated practical experience of writing computer programmes. To develop their ideas and ability to analyse and solve problems the children will also be able to evaluate and apply both familiar and new/unfamiliar technologies with confidence and with enthusiasm.
