Computing

There have been major changes to the National Curriculum with the introduction of a new subject, computing, that replaces ICT.

 

In delivering our scheme of work for computing we have combined the new National Curriculum with important key skills and knowledge about information technology. Our scheme of work is designed not only to prepare children for high school, but also for an ever-changing technological world.
