Computing

At Castlecombe we see the development of information communication technology as a vital skill that children need to succeed in the modern world. It is cross-curricular and we see the development of computing skills as crucial to the child’s ability to succeed in and out of school. The purpose of this policy is to state how the school intends to make this provision.

We follow the Department for Education' s National Curriculum programmes of study for Key Stages 1 and 2, details of which are published on the DfE's website:
