Curriculum Intent Statement
The Business and Computing department at St Anne’s endeavours to deliver an ambitious curriculum to allow pupils to engage with the digital world to promote computational thinking and digital creativity. We believe that “with great power comes great responsibility” – Stan Lee. We teach pupils to evaluate material portrayed online critically whilst appreciating that individuals have different opinions so that they may make informed choices about the impact of this material on society, wellbeing, ethics.
Pupils are taught about the hardware of the computers and have exposure to different programming languages, from the basic block level to high level but also get the opportunity to use physical computing to enable them apply their algorithmic thinking to practical tasks and real- life situations. Giving them skills to innovate and invent, to think independently, to appreciate the innovation that has taken us this far in the use of technology and inspiring pupils to take this innovation further.
