Wickhambrook Primary Academy


Why is Computing important?

At Wickhambrook Primary Academy, all of our teaching and learning builds on our core values; Achievement, Commitment, Resilience, Respect and Responsibility.

Through the Computing curriculum at Wickhambrook Primary Academy, we aim to instil a sense of enjoyment around using technology and to develop pupil’s appreciation of its capabilities and the opportunities technology offers to create, manage, organise and collaborate. Tinkering with software and programs forms a part of the ethos of the scheme as we want to develop pupils’ confidence when encountering new technology, which is a vital skill in the ever evolving and changing landscape of technology. Through our curriculum, we intend for pupils not only to be digitally competent and have a range of transferable skills at a suitable level for the future workplace, but also to be responsible online citizens.
