A high-quality computing education helps children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand the ever-changing world in which they live. Computing has deep links with many other curriculum areas including, but not limited to, mathematics, science and design and technology. Children are enabled to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in an ever more digital world.
