Cotmanhay Junior School

Safe, Happy Learning


At Cotmanhay Junior School we believe that computational thinking is vital in helping children to solve problems, design systems, and understand the power and limits of human and machine intelligence. We believe it is a skill that empowers, and one that all pupils should be aware of and develop competence in.


Being a proficient user of technology has become an integral part of everyday life. We want children to be able to use these technologies to their advantage and to also have a clear understanding as to how to keep themselves safe online. As a school, we believe in a holistic approach to the teaching and learning of computing and encourage a cross-curricular application of ICT. We believe that these skills will provide children with a firm foundation in computing from which they can build on throughout their lives. Pupils who can think computationally are better able to conceptualise, understand and use computer-based technology, and so are better prepared for today’s world and the future.
