1 Subject Computing/ICT Head of Department Ms F Kiss Accommodation and Resources Computing/ICT The Computing/ICT Department operates in three well appointed computer rooms. Each room has more than 30 flat screen computers providing access to a range of software as well as the Internet. Most of the software used and taught, is industry standard. This means that our pupils have more transferable skills and knowledge for home, further education and the workplace than those using more economical, less standardised software. The Computing curriculum uses the following software: Python Small Basic BBC Basic Kodu Flowol Game Maker Scratch The majority of the business applications are Microsoft, including: Word Excel Powerpoint Publisher Access Whereas the media, website and presentation software is mostly Adobe and includes: Photoshop Dreamweaver Flash Fireworks Premier Pro In addition we have the Internet and other more specialised software applications and items of hardware for control systems and other aspects. All lessons are provided by experienced and qualified ICT specialist teaching staff. Staffing Ms F Kiss - Head of Department Mr M Capps - KS4 Co-ordinator Mr D Price - ICT Teacher Moodle The Computing/ICT department has been using the Moodle virtual learning environment (VLE) for some time now and it has subsequently been adopted by most departments within the school. The Computing/ICT department and others have found this to be an invaluable resource for: Sharing resources within the department Sharing resources intra-departmentally Sharing resources with pupils. Giving the pupils an area in which to efficiently and reliably back-up their work. Giving the pupils the option to submit work electronically (reducing the amount of paperwork to carry etc.) Monitoring achievement. Pupils being able to self-assess, particularly with regard to KS3 levels and KS4 & KS5 criteria.

2 Massively reducing reprographics costs. Moodle is accessible anywhere with an Internet connection by pupils and staff alike. This means that when a pupil is absent, if they have an Internet connection, they usually have the opportunity to find the work and resources they would have been using in the lesson, minimising the disruption to their learning. Moodle can also be used to give near instantaneous feedback to both the teacher and pupil. Extra Curricular Activities Pupils have access to computer rooms at lunchtimes and after school, as well as having access to a suite of computers in the Learning Resource Centre (library). The focus of after school sessions is to support pupils in their coursework and an ICT specialist teacher is on hand to support them. Key Stage 3 Computing KS3 National Curriculum 3 year scheme of work 2 lessons over a 2 week timetable Key Stage 4 Core / Options 1/2 Cambridge Nationals in ICT GCSE Equivalent Core 2 year scheme of work 2 lessons over a 2 week timetable This course builds on the ICT work pupils completed in years 7 to 9. It will provide pupils the opportunity to improve their skills and capability to solve problems and develop ideas with ICT. Pupils will complete four units of work throughout this course: Unit R001 - Understanding Computer Systems. This unit will provide pupils with the underpinning knowledge and understanding required to use computer systems effectively. Pupils will develop their knowledge and understanding of the systems they use both at home and at school and will explore how these same technologies are used by business organisations. On completion of this unit, pupils will have gained the knowledge and understanding to use computers more effectively in a variety of different contexts including home, school and the workplace. Pupils will understand the need for their own person data security and for the security of the data of others will be increased and, overall, pupils will be more informed users of computers making them more effective paricipators in business and social life. This unit is an external assessment where pupils will be expected to demonstrate their understanding through questions that require the skills of analysis and evaluation in particular contexts.

3 Pupils will complete a written one-hour examination. Unit R002 - Using ICT to create Business solutions. This unit will provide pupils the opportunity to develop ICT skills that will equip them to operate effectively in a business environment. Pupils will work with 'office' applications software that are commonly used in the workplace, schools and in further and higher education. They will learn how to select the most appropriate software to complete tasks to meet specified business requirements in a variety of contexts. Pupils will learn how to use software tools to handle data and communicate information for a range of business purposes, and how to apply formatting to enhance those documents to suit their purpose and intended audience. These types of skills are very valuable as they can be transferred from one software application to another. This unit is assessed through the completion of a portfolio of evidence which will meet the Learning Outcomes of the unit that is centre assessed and externally moderated by. Unit R005 - Creating an Interactive product using Multimedia components. This unit will provide pupils the opportunity to demonstrate their creative flair by combing multimedia components to create a vibrant, energetic or stimulating www, webpage or interactive products which are used widely in everyday life; from visiting a website, ordering online products, using mobile phone applications, viewing a presentation, e-learning products or playing computer games. On completion of this unit pupils will be able to show how the interactive product meets both the user needs and extends their capability within the use of applications software such as website development. This unit is assessed through the completion of a portfolio of evidence which will meet the Learning Outcomes of the unit that is centre assessed and externally moderated by. Unit R007 - Creating dynamic products using sound and vision. This unit will enable pupils to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills that would be expected in creative media industries such as advertising, music and online marketing. 21st century technology such as gaming technologies, mobile phone apps, media marketing technologies and web-based technologies make great use of dynamic specialist technologies to differentiate their products for their end user. Pupils will have the opportunity to learn about dynamic products such as music recordings and/or mixes; video/media news clips and animation for webpages before going on to create their own dynamic product. On completion of this unit pupils will be able to prepare, create, export and evaluate a timeline-based dynamic product. This unit is assessed through the completion of a portfolio of evidence which will meet the Learning Outcomes of the unit that is centre assessed and externally moderated by.
