Computing Intent

 

At Colburn, the aim of our computing curriculum is to provide our children with the computing skills required for their futures. Our curriculum is ambitious, inclusive, and engaging – promoting a life-long curiosity in the digital world.

 

Our intent is to give all children the skills and confidence to use computing and ICT to enhance learning and develop motivation in a safe and responsible way. We recognise that all Colburn children are entitled to high quality hardware and software, and a structured and progressive teaching approach that equips Colburn children with the skills to use digital technologies effectively.
