St Augustine’s School                                                               Computing Rationale 2019/2020

The world we live in is rapidly evolving. Technology, whether discrete or overt is now a central part of our lives.

Through teaching computing we equip children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. We enable them to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating and effective way. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners.
