Role Models and Catalysts for Change


In ICT and Computing we are keen to prepare our students for their time after Clare Mount and so our curriculum reflects this throughout  Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4


In Key Stage 3 we are teaching all of the skills in order to prepare the students for their qualifications in Key Stage 4 ICT. The students will make Logos, Spreadsheets, Presentations and create a game using Scratch before making a Multimedia Product as preparation for KS4 BTEC as well as working with the Microsoft Suite of programs in order to improve these skills in line with the new Entry Level qualification in ICT at KS4. 


All of the skills will prepare our students for their Key Stage 4 studies. All students in Year 10 and 11 who choose to study Additional ICT option will study to achieve at least a Level 1/Level 2 qualification in the BTEC Technical Digital Information Technology qualification, a recognised qualification equivalent to GCSE. 


We have also introduced an Entry Level qualification in ICT for those who are studying Core ICT to allow them to achieve a formal qualification in the subject. On a case by case basis, we may also enter some of these students for BTEC if they show a particular flair for the topic but do not choose to study the option.


Throughout the year we work on standalone projects in relation to cross curricular studies including Maths, English and Science and also study E-safety during Safer Internet week and throughout the school year.


Also please find attached a link to various ICT topics through Teach-ICT games. The students think they are playing but it is a fun way to learn the many aspects of ICT and Computing
