“Computer technology is so built into our lives that it’s part of the surround of every artist”
“Computing is not about computers any more. It is about living.” Nicholas Negroponte
At OCEPS, we believe that every child should have the right to a curriculum that champions excellence; supporting pupils in achieving to the very best of their abilities. We understand the immense value technology plays not only in supporting the Computing and whole school curriculum but overall in the day to day life of our school.
We believe that technology can provide: enhanced collaborative learning opportunities; better engagement of pupils; easier access to rich content; support conceptual understanding of new concepts and can support the needs of all our pupils.
Computing will equip pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The children are made aware of the need to digitally keep themselves safe, not only on computers but also on mobiles and gaming devices.
