Subject: Computing

All pupils at De Lacy have the right to have rich, deep learning experiences that balance all the aspects of computing. With technology playing such a significant role in society today, we believe ‘computational thinking’ is a skill that children must be taught if they are to be able to participate effectively and safely in this digital world.

At De Lacy, the core of computing is Computer Science in which pupils are introduced to a wide range of technological interfaces, including laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards. This allows them to continually practice and improve the skills they learn. The generation of children we teach are already digitally literate so our job is to augment and develop their skills so they benefit from being safe and active participants in the digital world. We support pupils to develop their computing skills through active research, editing and basic programming so that they can apply these in a range of topics across their curriculum.
