The New Computing Curriculum develops both skills and knowledge. Computing has replaced ICT as a national curriculum subject at all key stages. Computing is now concerned with how computers and computer systems work, how they are designed and programmed, how to apply computational thinking and how to make best use of information technology. Windsor Park staff aim to give pupils a broad education that encourages creativity and equips them with the knowledge and skills to understand and change the world.
Our Computing programme and enrichment activities/clubs bring new challenges and opportunities that should excite and empower pupils at a rapid pace preparing pupils to thrive in an increasing digital world.
The Royal Society has identified three distinct strands within computing, each of which is complementary to the others; computer science (CS), information technology (IT) and digital literacy (DL).
