The Computing curriculum provides opportunities for learners to develop both their computing and ICT capability. The Computing curriculum ensures that all learners are given the necessary knowledge and understanding to enable them to be digitally literate at an individual level suitable for the future workplace and to become active participants in a digital world. At Landgate School, we acknowledge the importance of deepening learner’s skills, knowledge and understanding through transference of skills across the curriculum. With this in mind leaners have access to two portable laptop trolley and two portable iPad trolley to immerse Computing and ICT within the curriculum.
All learners follow the National curriculum, appropriate to their school age. It involves all aspects of ICT, Computing and Digital Literacy and is a good foundation for the development of skills, knowledge and understanding. The long term plan cover the following areas;
