Computing Lead - Mr Crickwood

At All Saints, we follow the National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE)'s Teach Computing curriculum. The NCCE is funded by the Department for Education and supporting partners.

The Teach Computing Curriculum has been written to support all pupils. Each lesson is sequenced so that it builds on the learning from the previous lesson, and where appropriate, activities are scaffolded so that all pupils can succeed and thrive. Scaffolded activities provide pupils with extra resources, such as visual prompts, to reach the same learning goals as the rest of the class. Exploratory tasks foster a deeper understanding of a concept, encouraging pupils to apply their learning in different contexts and make connections with other learning experiences.

As well as scaffolded activities, embedded within the lessons are a range of pedagogical strategies, which support making computing topics more accessible.
