Computing – Subject information

In such an advanced world we believe at Westcott, that all of our children should be strong computational thinkers in computer science, information technology, and digital literacy, to be effective and secure in the digital world. As such, the children at Westcott will be given regular opportunities to be technicians, using a range of software and devices, such as chromebooks and iPads, providing the platforms and time to learn and develop.
