Rivelin's computing vision
At Rivelin Computing provides children with the skills, knowledge and understanding to be creative, responsible and safe users of technology, at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
Computing is concerned with how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. Pupils studying computing will gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds. Computational Thinking provides insights into many areas of the curriculum, and influences work at the cutting edge of a wide range of disciplines.
Computational Thinking allows us to solve problems, design systems, and understand the power and limits of human and machine intelligence. Pupils who can think computationally are better able to conceptualise, understand and use computer-based technology, and so are better prepared for today’s world and the future.
In Rivelin, Computing is taught in the computing suite for 1 hour a week as well as being used cross-curricularly through the use of IPads.
