Loving for Today, Learning for Tomorrow, Forever in Faith


If only a few years remain until the Year of Jubilee, they are to compute that and pay for their redemption accordingly.


Leviticus 25:52

New International Version


At Northaw, we promote computing as central to preparing for tomorrow’s world while not shying away from openly discussing the inherent dangers of devices. We have customised a scheme of work based on the curriculum from Teach Computing. Pupils have access to both laptops and tablets, and they are used in other subjects. Teachers should not make assumptions about pupils’ prior knowledge within digital literacy, and have access to high-quality computing CPD to develop and maintain their subject knowledge. We participate in Safer Internet Day. Ofsted’s research review series has informed our practice in this area.

Adaptation for Inclusion


We want pupils with SEND to achieve exceptionally well in computing, and have constructed a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all pupils, particularly disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. The curriculum is successfully adapted to meet the needs of pupils with SEND, developing their knowledge, skills and abilities to apply what they know and can do with increasing fluency and independence.

Teachers can also refer to our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Guidance where classroom difficulties and strategies to support are listed by area of need.
