Computing & Business
We want our students to be valuable citizens of society, community and country.
Curriculum Intent for Computing and Business:
Through our curriculum at Essa Academy we will provide our students with the life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way in order to flourish. We want our students to be creators not consumers and our broad curriculum encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this. We want our students to understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a faculty recognise that the best prevention for a lot of issues we currently see with technology/social media is through education.
We built the curriculum with the intent that students will be able to:
Our pedagogy and subject will allow students to:
Be ambitious and confident learners who are fully engaged with their learning and to develop resilience when faced with new challenges.
Develop effective programming skills, think computationally and become effective problem solvers and logical thinkers.
Have memorable experiences of digital literacy through engagement and enjoyment of the subject and through enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities such as the digital literacy club and coding clubs.
Know the importance of British values through the learning of ethical, legal, moral and cultural aspects of Computer Science and business.
Develop mastery and knowledge of key concepts so that they can deepen their understanding and embed knowledge and skills that support their 5 year journey throughout their time at Essa Academy.
