We are Cool @ Computing!

"Computing is not about computers anymore. It is about living."

Computing Intent

At Wood End Park Academy our intention is to provide our pupils the life skills that will empower them to embrace and utilise technology in a socially responsible and safe way in order to flourish in our school and beyond.

We thrive to ensure that our curriculum is accessible to every child.  We aim for our children to gain confidence and enjoyment from their activities in order to become responsible independent users of technology.  Our pupils achieve digital literacy and develop creativity, resilience and critical thinking skills through problem solving.

Our curriculum adheres to the National Curriculum by focusing on a progression of skills in digital literacy, computer science, information technology and online safety.  Where efficient and effective, pupils use their skills gained from Computing lessons to support learning across the curriculum.

Prior to moving on to higher education and the wider world, we endeavour our pupils to have a scope of experience in Computing and technology, in etiquette and online safety which, in a fast-moving online world, guides our pupils to become good, honest, responsible digital citizens.

We asked the children how they feel about learning Computing...
