Computing was introduced in its current form into the primary curriculum in 2015. In addition to the previously taught ICT content, coding (programming) was introduced in order to give today's pupils the necessary computing and problem solving skills for their future careers. In addition to coding, we look for opportunities throughout the whole curriculum to use and develop our computing skills.
