Computing at St Finbar’s
Computing has been an a subject that the majority of the pupils enjoy. Computers and technology are now an integral part of life in the 21st Century from social media to games to complex algorithms.
The three aspects of the computing curriculum are: computer science (CS), information technology (IT) and digital literacy (DL).
At St Finbars we aim to educate the pupils to understand how the use of technology can be useful in their education safely, respectfully and responsibly. For them to understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the world wide web; the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration. For pupils to be given an opportunity to design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts.
