The curriculum is based on the latest pedagogical research. It also provides an innovative progression framework where computing content (concepts, knowledge, skills, and objectives) have been organised into interconnected networks.

The programming units, where concepts and skills rely on prior knowledge and experiences are taught in order. 

Implementation At Middle Barton School, we use the Teach Computing scheme from the National Centre for Computing Education. Through this scheme, children and teachers are offered a comprehensive range of evidence-informed, high-quality lessons, resources and training courses. 

Impact is measured at the end of each half term and topic area through teacher assessment  to track individual pupil’s understanding throughout the unit. 


Teacher’s will use work completed throughout the unit and pupil voice to inform their judgement.
