At St. Richard's, we believe that computing is an integral part of preparing children to live in a world where technology is continuously and rapidly evolving. Our intent is to deliver a curriculum which:
- Imparts children with the knowledge of risks online and how to remain safe enabling pupils to believe they can use technology in a safe and responsible way independently.
- Develops children’s confidence and competence of engaging with a variety of technology to encourage them to belong to a world shaped by technology allowing them to gain skills that will equip them for life.
- Seeks to engage and enrich children’s experiences in school through digital literacy, ICT and computer science allowing them to become confident digital learners who use computational thinking in an ever changing digital world.
