Computing Curriculum Information

At Oakway Academy, we aim to deliver a high-quality computing education that readily equips children with the fundamental skills of computational thinking, creativity and versatility, which are required to be successful participants of the digital world.

Children have opportunities to problem solve, analyse and build resilience through Computer Science. These key skills are further explored and consolidated using Information Technology to allow children to connect with others and articulate their ideas via a range of media, systems and digital content.

Digital Literacy provides children with the knowledge and understanding of how to be safe and respectful users of technology, both inside and outside of school. Computing at Oakway Academy establishes strong links between subjects such as Maths, Science and DT and ultimately, endeavours to aspire and prepare children for life beyond school.
