Computing Curriculum (and Ofsted reflections)
Transcript of Computing Curriculum (and Ofsted reflections)
and Ofsted reflections
George Spencer Academy
Yes - you still have to do it!
ICT/Computing is still a compulsory part of the national curriculum at all key stages
You now have more choice as to what you do
Ofsted will check!
Academies do NOT need to follow the PoS (but need to be able to explain why!)
What are schools talking about?
Key Stage 3
How do we teach Microsoft Office (if we need to)?
Microsoft Office Specialist qualifications?
MS Office v Google Docs v OpenOffice?
What else can we include?
Media work - images, video, animation
Key Stage 4 - shift to courses that count in league tables:
GCSEs in ICT and/or Computer Science
Equivalent qualifications (for 2014 league tables)
only 2 equivalent qualifications count in current league tables and ‘2 GCSE equivalents’ only count as one
although up to 3 can count in the Progress 8 measure

Leadership and Management
(check website audit on Clerk to Governors site)
e-Safety - triangulate - staff, students and paperwork
Map cross-curricular and check it happens
Student Digital Leaders
Data, data, data
analyse well - key groups
Computing at Schools (CAS)
Network of Excellence
ITT and CPD website (DfE Expert Panel)
