Computing

Computing is an important part of everyday life in the 21st Century and the computing curriculum at Allen Edwards provides children with the skills to use technology efficiently and safely.

 

The aims of the computing curriculum are to equip the future generations with the necessary skills for adult life and employment within the ever-changing technological environment we live in. Children can:

 

  • understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation

  • analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems

  • evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems

  • become responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.​

E-Safety

Being online is a part of our daily lives and it can be a phenomenal tool for learning and communicating effectively.

 

Currently, 1 in 3 internet users are children and 1 in 4 of those children have experienced something upsetting on a social networking site. We place a heavy emphasis on the teaching of Online Safety and the message becomes even stronger when reinforced at home.

Below is advice on what you can do to ensure that children are safe online:
