Computing at Barton Church of England Primary School aims to equip children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has cross-curricular links and can be embedded into many areas of learning and in our creative curriculum themes. Children will be taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Children learn to use technology purposefully and evaluate and apply skills to solve problems. Children will also be taught how to use technology safely and respectfully in this ever changing world. Computing also ensures that children at Barton Church of England Primary School will develop the skills to become digitally literate- expressing themselves through information and communication technology- ready for them to become active participants in the digital world, which is vitally important if our children want to continue to live and work and sustain our rural community.
