Computing

Computing 

"A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world." - National Curriculum Framework Document 2013.

Computing is quickly becoming one of the most vital skills for our young people to learn in our ever changing, fast-paced and technology driven society. 

At Barton Hill Academy we aim to educate children not only the important computing skills they need, but to educate them on the importance of staying safe online. We utilise a variety of tools to teach these skills: discussions, written work and of course use of technologies. PurpleMash has been launched in our school this year and helps teachers plan and teach effective computing lessons. This new program is online and can therefore, be used by pupils in and out of school.
