  4. 4. Progression KS1 Understand use of algorithms Write & test simple programs Use logical reasoning to make predictions Organise, store, retrieve & manipulate data Communicate online safely and respectfully Recognise uses of IT outside of school
  5. 5. Progression LKS2 Design & write programs to achieve specific goals, including solving problems Use logical reasoning Understand computer networks Use internet safely and appropriately Collect and present data appropriately
  6. 6. Progression UKS2 Design & write programs to solve problems Use sequences, repetition, inputs, variables and outputs in programs Detect & correct errors in programs Understand uses of networks for collaboration & communication Be discerning in evaluating digital content
  7. 7. Managing Change Curriculum remodelling - embedding ‘ICT’ Staff training to develop skills in ‘coding’ Hardware/software ‘refresh’ to meet new requirements Evaluating ‘best practice’ Pupil portfolios and monitoring work samples Demonstration lessons Assessment models
  8. 8. Managing Change “The CLC staff are highly professional and have provided help in issues that range from curriculum design, to solving school based technical issues. They are a valuable resource, which apart from providing children with high quality educational experiences, also support teachers to improve their own ICT capability” For an audit of your school’s ‘computing’ requirements contact: alex.purssey@wandsworthclc.org
