Rationale for the Computing Curriculum at Wick CE Primary


During their time at Wick CE Primary all children will learn how to use a wide range of computing technology. Children will have the opportunity to become safe, respectable digital citizens, and be confident selecting appropriate computing technology for a wide variety of uses in the outside world.


We aim to encourage children to become computer literate, enabling them to fulfil their potential in an increasingly computer-dominated world. Learning key transferable computing skills such as typing, research, coding and data handling concepts, will enable them to adapt in an ever changing and technology rich environment.
