Computing at Steep

At Steep be know that a high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. We recognise that computing has strong links with other areas of the curriculum and capitalise on these links.  The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing at Steep ensures  children become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – so that they are well prepared for their  future workplaces and as active participants in a digital world.


We aim to ensure that children at Steep:

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
