Computing Vision Statement

Pupils at Packmoor Ormiston Academy will continue to enjoy computing and develop the necessary skills to prepare them for later life, whether this be during high school, college, university or in their careers. Children will understand how technology is used in the world around us and how the skills they are learning today are the foundations to their future. At Packmoor Ormiston Academy we believe “technology skills and computing are embedded within all aspects of learning to ensure our pupils are fit for the future”.
