Subject: Computing

At The Rookeries, we aim to prepare our children to be lifelong learners who can draw on a range of skills when meeting new challenges. As computing becomes an increasingly important part of everyday life, it is essential that all pupils gain the confidence and ability that they need in this subject, to prepare them for the challenge of a rapidly developing and changing technological world. Children will be given opportunities to use different technologies in order to enhance and extend their learning across the curriculum whilst developing motivational and social skills. Our vision is to enrich the experience of all pupils by providing an environment without learning boundaries, where computing opportunities can be explored in safety and confidence.

Pupils should become confident, competent, and independent users of a range of computing equipment, and be able to apply their skills in many different situations in order to achieve specific goals. They will see technology as an essential, engaging and effective way to achieve success and be able to call upon their skills and experiences in order to do this.
