We believe a high-quality computing education equips pupils to use 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. At Brabourne School, pupils are introduced to a wide range of technology, including laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards, allowing them to continually practice and improve the skills they learn. This ensures they become digitally literate so that they are able to express themselves and develop their ideas through information and computer technology, at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a safer digital world.
In line with the National Curriculum, the principal aims of Computing at Brabourne are to ensure that all pupils:
- can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer
science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
- can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience
of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
- can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar
technologies, analytically to solve problems
- are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and
