Computing

Computing 

At Fermor, we recognise the important role computing has in preparing all young people to take part in a rapidly developing society where both work and leisure require a good level of computer knowledge.

Following the National Curriculum guidelines, our computing curriculum is based around the following core strands:

  • Information Technology - The use of computers to create, process, store and exchange all kinds of electronic data and information.

  • Digital Literacy – The ability to find, evaluate and clearly communicate information through typing and other media on a range of digital platforms.

  • Computer Science – The ability to design new software, solve computing problems and develop different ways to use technology.

E-Safety

Within our computing curriculum, we teach e-safety through discrete lessons at the start of the school year and within our other computing units.

As a school, we have a long tradition of participating in the annual Safer Internet Day, which this academic year falls on Tuesday 8th February 2022. During this national event, schools dedicate a whole day to celebrating the opportunities given to us by modern technology and the internet, while raising awareness of how to access these safely.
