A high quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.
At Temple Ewell, building on this knowledge and understanding, we aim for pupils to be equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. We aim to ensure that pupils become digitally literate so that they are able to use and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology and be active participants in the digital world.

‘I love how I can sometimes take my learning home with me to practise my skills. I really like being able to show what I can do’.
(Seb, Year 5)
‘Computing lessons are challenging, we have to really think about complex algorithms and where they might not function properly. I like being able to spot any programming errors’
(Olivia, Year 6)
‘I particularly enjoyed designing and testing a game out with my friends this year, it was fun’.
(Lucas, Year 5)
