At Marie Weller, we believe that computing develops pupils programming and computer science while also providing opportunities for creative and collaborative work.

Every computing lesson follows the national curriculum which aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.
  • Can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.
  • Can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
  • Are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

We view online safety as an integral part of your child’s education, therefore online safety units are incorporated into each term so that children learn how to access digital information and use digital media safely and appropriately, both at school and at home.
