We love Computing at Baxenden St John's!

Computing Intent at Baxenden St John’s

The computing curriculum at Baxenden St John’s teaches children to be logical, to reason, solve problems and to communicate their ideas through a variety of media platforms as contributors to and participants in a digital world. Our pupils explore abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation to become responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology. In doing so, we believe that our pupils can use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world, drawing upon skills from mathematics, science and design technology.
