Computing and Online Safety Overview 2023-2025

Computing Body of Knowledge 2023-2025

At Gatehouse, our computing curriculum is constructed over a 2 year rolling programme.

The programme has been constructed in so that over the pupils Gatehouse journey they will cover all areas of computing including Digital Literacy (the uses of technology, Computing systems and networks), Information Technology (Creating media Data and information) and Computer Science (Computer programming) with a robust and detailed offer relating to Online Safety.


Every year pupils complete 5 units of computing in depth following a progressive sequence of lessons outlined by the  National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE).  Pupils will complete one unit of digital literacy and either three units of creating media or three units of Computer Programming. The fifth unit of data and information is matched to our Science curriculum and is run alongside interweaving the skills and knowledge required ensuring the computing is taught first with the vehicle of delivery being the science.
