Computing at Nyewood prepares all pupils to participate in a rapidly changing world in which work and other activities are increasingly transformed by access to varied and developing technology. Pupils are able to use computational thinking and computational language with increasing confidence in order to become digitally literate and are able to make links to other subjects, understanding how different computer systems work and understand computing in a global context. Computing at Nyewood gives pupils skills to become active participants and valued individuals in the digital world. Pupils know how to use and search technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact. Effective use of computing improves access to the curriculum for pupils of all levels and enhances engagement with and enjoyment of learning. Computers, tablets, programmable robots, online learning platforms, digital and video cameras are a few of the many tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information. Computing empowers pupils to become independent, creative and collaborative learners; able to solve problems; achieve goals and communicate effectively with others.
