The subject of computing is becoming ever present in children and adults lives as technology grows and grows. We all use computing every day to communicate, program and present our ideas in a variety of ways. With the intense shift towards using computing in society, we must prepare children for the technological world they live in for the present and future. Our policy and practice in computing aims to give children the opportunity to achieve their full potential. This policy will provide guidance in relation to computing and cover all areas including supporting teaching and learning; resources; assessment and safety within the subject.
The role of the computing coordinator is to ensure that computing is being taught regularly and correctly across school and that resources are readily available for teachers to have increased confidence and enjoyment in teaching the subject.
