Computing at Furzedown

The new national curriculum for computing has been developed to equip our children with the foundational skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. They will learn how computers and computer systems work, they will design and build programs, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content.

The three aspects of the computing curriculum are: computer science (CS), information technology (IT) and digital literacy (DL).
