Method and Organisation
In Secondary, once a term a class will work on completing one or two units of work based on the Equals & QCA Schemes of Work. (This will be the objectives not necessarily the activities listed). In Primary pupils work on topic lead skills drawing from Equals and the QCA Scheme of Wotk.
Individual QCA, Equals units are used to form the basic medium term plans on which are highlighted: health and safety, SMSC, Key Skills, etc.
Adaptations are made to ensure the plan is progressive in developing pupil capability. These are used as working documents to identify time markers, additional resource needs and to indicate whether optional activities have been undertaken. Once a unit has been completed, the planning sheet will be evaluated by the co-ordinator and class teacher, to inform future planning.
In KS4 AQA Unit Award Scheme provides formalised qualification.
Individual machines in classrooms support the development of ICT capability by enabling further development of tasks from ICT room; encourage research and allow for the creative use of ICT in subjects. This is highlighted in the ICT plan and in subject plans.
