Through our computing curriculum, we aim to give our pupils the life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way. We want our pupils to have the skills to operate in the 21st century workplace and we want them to know the career opportunities that will be open to them if they study computing.
Not only do we want pupils to be digitally literate and competent users of technology, but through our computer science lessons we want them to develop creativity, resilience and problem-solving skills by learning how to be ‘computational thinkers’.
We want pupils to become confident, independent users of computing technologies, as well as gaining enjoyment from their activities. We want the use of technology to support learning across the entire curriculum wherever possible and to ensure that our curriculum is accessible to every child.
At Brickhouse, we aim to deliver a progressive and repetitive curriculum to develop knowledge and skills over time through our new computing scheme, Teach Computing.
