A high-quality computing education equips pupils to understand and change the world through logical thinking and creativity, including by making links with mathematics, science, and design and technology.
The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation and how digital systems work. Computing equips pupils to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of media. It also ensures that pupils become digitally literate and are able to use computer equipment as well as express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology, all at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
