Computing Statement of Intent
Why is Computing important for all students in the Olympus Academy Trust? Why does it matter? How does studying Computing help young people to achieve?
The core of computing is computer science, in which learners are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, learners are equipped to use information technology to create a range of content.
The computing curriculum also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology – at a suitable level for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
Learners are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology that inspires them to lead change and will enable them to become curious life-long learners.
