practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve
evaluate and apply information technology, including new or
unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of
information and communication technology
All lessons must be planned using the agreed computing scheme of Rising
stars and adapted to meet the requirements of learners as necessary.
Children must be assessed at the end of every unit. Pupils assessments
are then to be sent to SLT to be uploaded onto Pupil Asset.
Each year group must have their own working wall displayed within the
