Hallgate Primary School



We believe that pupils’ computing understanding, knowledge and skills are at their best when they have the opportunity to use basic skills that are embedded in the curriculum as well as practical computing skills that prepare our pupils for the 21st century.


Computing is concerned with how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. Pupils studying computing will gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers. Computational thinking provides insights into many areas of the curriculum, and influences work at the cutting edge of a wide range of disciplines.
