Curriculum Planning

This section of the toolkit is intended to help the SLT ensure that the school’s curriculum provision for computing meets the needs of all learners, providing appropriate challenges and routes for progression. The computing curriculum should address the three interconnected areas of computer science, information technology and digital literacy, and should focus on developing young people’s ‘computational thinking’. As with all subjects, the school’s computing curriculum should be captured in a scheme of work which clearly shows progression and ensures teaching activities build on existing understanding.
