Use schemes of work to plot the curriculum out over the year
To make sure you cover all National Curriculum computing content, create a scheme of work that plans out topics and skills for each half-term. Your scheme of work should specify what programmes or apps will be used in each activity, and can include links to useful websites.
You should also indicate where there are potential assessment opportunities.

This school uses a scheme of work created by Purple Mash. It outlines the aims and success criteria for each lesson at each year and provides a guide to differentiation.
You can also use progression grids to break down the National Curriculum for computing into learning outcomes, which you can then use to assess whether a student is meeting age-related expectations.Computing at School (CAS) has created 2
