At St.Thomas’ we believe that the children have the right to a rich and deep learning experience in all aspects of computing. With technology playing such a significant role across society, we believe that ‘computational thinking’ is a skill that should be taught if they are to be able to participate effectively and safely in the digital world.
We want our pupils to be prepared to operate in the 21st century workplace understanding the career opportunities in computing that will be open to them in the future.
We believe that computing should develop creativity, resilience, problem solving and critical thinking skills in our children as they progress through school.
Computing is a subject that not only stands alone but is interwoven into all other subjects we teach at St.Thomas’. At the heart of this is online safety, ensuring that children are safe and learn how to be safe when online.
At St.Thomas’ we are a leading provider of computing teaching with a focus on the use of I-pads. We pride ourselves on being a RTC school for Apple providing training for teachers on the use of i-Pads in the classroom.
