Where every child matters


At Hamp Nursery and Infants School we believe that a high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and 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.


Our aim is for children to become confident users of technology and to develop the skills and knowledge relating to Computer Science, Digital Literacy and Information Technology. Computing education is an integral part of preparing children to live in a world where technology is continuously evolving. Work and social activities are being increasing transformed by access to varied and developing technology. We endeavour to ensure that our children fully grasp the relevance of and the possibilities of emerging technologies so that they can play a part in this rapidly changing landscape. It is essential that the computing skills taught are equipping the students for jobs that may not currently exist in today’s world.


The subject develops pupil’s information skills, including the ability to use information sources and computing tools to help them find, explore, develop, analyses, exchange, and present information and to support their problem solving, investigative and expressive work.  The use of computing significantly enhances teaching and learning in other subjects by enabling rapid access to knowledge, information, and experiences from a wide range of sources.  The use of computing throughout the curriculum encourages critical thinking, imagination and creativity, problem solving, initiative and independence, teamwork, and reflection.
