Blessed John Duckett RCVA Primary School believes that computing makes a significant contribution to teaching and learning across all subjects and age ranges.
Our goal is to ensure pupils become independent, confident and responsible users of computers in order to prepare them for life in an increasingly technology rich world.
Through Computing lessons, pupils are taught how to use programs, systems and a wide range of media. Pupils will use this knowledge when they carry out programming.
Pupils will develop the skills to be independent thinkers in which they can apply to all areas of learning. They wil be able to technology confidently and understand how to use it responsibly.
