Computing at EWPS

As the world is becoming more of a global village through the use of communications via the internet, we want to ensure that the pupils in our school are confident and safe users of the internet and technology.  Our focus will be on online safety and increasing challenge in areas such as programming, debugging and understanding algorithms.
