Computer Science

The Computer Science curriculum aims to develop the digital and computing abilities of the students and provide an insight into the range of opportunities and careers in the computing, gaming and digital industries.  The students are supported in the development of their transferable skills including: communication, leadership, teamwork, analysis, problem solving and independent learning.

Students at Lea Valley will follow an innovative curriculum that will help develop their thinking skills and knowledge and understanding of computer science.  The schemes of learning enable the students to learn about the key techniques of computational thinking from decomposition, pattern recognition, algorithms and programming. 

The students will learn to recognise that digital content can be represented in many digital forms and understand the importance of communicating safely and respectfully online and the need for keeping personal information private.
