Computing skills are increasingly essential to enable learners to participate more readily in a rapidly changing world. At Mendlesham, we show pupils not only how to interact with software and hardware, but teach them the skills to help shape the innovations of the future. Computing is relevant to the real world and supports cross-curricular learning, enabling pupils to become digitally literate and equipped for the workplace. As interactions and relationships are increasingly online, teaching the safe and respectful use of technology is paramount.
At Mendlesham we follow the Teach Computing scheme which is written by the National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) and is funded by the Department for Education and supporting partners. It marks a significant investment in improving the provision of computing education in England.
