Darell's computing curriculum encourages logical thinking and creativity, 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. Computer science equips pupils to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of media. It also ensures that pupils become digitally literate, which means they are able to use, express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
Darell pupils will use a range of technologies to program, develop, debug (fix), record, edit and animate. Alongside this, pupils will gain a range of computer skills that include, word processing, touch typing, presentation and publishing through cross-curricular lessons.
