Computing. The Computing curriculum equips students 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, 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. The national curriculum for Computing aims to ensure that all pupils:  can understand and apply the 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 such 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. ICT used to focus purely on computer literacy – teaching pupils how to use existing computer software programmes for tasks such as word-processing or creating spreadsheets. This has been replaced by the new Computing curriculum which teaches children programming skills as a long-term solution to address the skills gap between technology sector jobs and the people qualified to work in the technology industry.  At Key Stage 1 (5-6 year olds): pupils will learn what algorithms are and begin to use logical reasoning skills and begin to create simple programmes and de-bug these using visual coding platforms, such as Scratch.  By Key Stage 2 (7-11 year olds) students get more practice using software on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including using devices for collecting, analysing and presenting back data and information.  In Secondary school, Key Stage 3 (11-13 year olds) children will begin to expand their programming languages...
