“We must prepare students for a future we can neither describe nor predict.” - David Warlick
At St. John’s our vision is to ensure pupils are taught the knowledge and skills to use technology responsibly, positively and safely. We believe that computing is an integral part of preparing our pupils to live in a world where technology is continuously evolving. Through teaching computational thinking, pupils gain the confidence and ability they need to enable them to fully grasp the relevance of emerging technologies and their potential, thus preparing pupils for the future, both at secondary school and beyond.
Our computing curriculum ensures that pupils become digitally literate, demonstrating the ability to use and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology. We encourage staff to try and embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible. We want our pupils to be fluent with a range of tools to best express their understanding, developing the independence and confidence to choose the best tool to fulfil the task.
