Computing

INTENT 

All pupils at Biscovey Academy have the right to an engaging, immersive and comprehensive curriculum that not only meets the content of the National Curriculum but provides the children with a solid understanding of an ever-changing technological world. We believe ‘Computational thinking’ and ‘creativity’ is the backbone that children must be taught if they are to effectively participate in this digital world in a productive yet safe way. 

Through the study of Computing, children will develop a wide range of fundamental skills, knowledge and understanding that will enable them to take a proactive role in everyday life. In fact, a lack of these skills would put children at a major disadvantage and therefore reduce their options as they grow. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology. However, we aim to incorporate Computing within all subjects as we should not subject both children and adults to a constrained curriculum that inhibits creativity and understanding. 

It is our intention to provide a robust curriculum which aims to nourish children and, through  ‘Computational thinking’, provide essential knowledge that the children can continuously build upon outside of Biscovey Academy.
