Computing

At Manor Park we aim 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 communication technology.

§ create and debug simple programs

§ use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs

§ use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content

§ recognise common uses of information technology beyond school

§ use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
