Our school vision for teaching Computing

Our vision for teaching computing at St. Patrick’s is that our curriculum provides our children with the skills to use computational thinking and creativity to understand our rapidly developing world. At St. Patrick’s, we recognise that using technology correctly and confidently is an invaluable tool in society and we aim to support our learners to become responsible and independent users of ICT. We teach our children to be safe and aware when using technology, particularly online, in order to be active participants in a digital world.
