At Fullerton our Computing curriculum aims to equip children with the computing skills they will need in the future. Our vision is that by the time children leave Y6 they will be confident and responsible users of a variety of programmes and technologies.
The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:
· Can understand and apply fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.
· Can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve problems.
· Can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
· Are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

Children at Fullerton are given opportunities to explore, be creative and use computational thinking and language to gain skills to use in and out of school. We feel these skill are very important as we are in a digital world.
