Computing at St Mary's

"Computers are incredibly fast, accurate, and stupid. Human beings are incredibly slow, inaccurate, and brilliant. Together they are powerful beyond imagination." Albert Einstein



Our Computing curriculum at St Mary’s is designed to create digitally literate children, through providing an education that teaches both computer science, in which children are taught the fundamental principles of computing, alongside encouraging them to use different forms of digital media and devices to express themselves. 


Our units are sequenced and progressive, giving particular attention to fundamental concepts and are built on prior knowledge. This curriculum will introduce some children to the world of computing, whilst enhancing the skills others may already have. We believe it is vital to prepare our children for their future endeavours, by equipping them with a computing curriculum that is rich in fundamental computer sciences, together with the confidence to use their practical skills to become active participants in the digital world.
