Computing

The National Curriculum for computing 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 are well equipped to deliver these aims at Sennen and benefit from having iPads, laptops and interactive whiteboards in every classroom. We are also very proud of our computer coding club 'Scratch club' that is well attended weekly.
Our planning is informed by the 'Switched on Computing' curriculum.
