ICT – SEND computing project

The Partnership Teaching School worked with five teachers from special schools and three teachers from primary schools to develop a Computing Curriculum for Pupils with special educational needs working SEND. The project was facilitated by Somerset’s eLIM team.

The Somerset Primary Model for the September 2014 Computing programme of study was used to identify what a computing curriculum could look like for learners with complex needs. Three progression documents have been published, together with a model of computational thinking Computing Curriculum Primary SEND .

This computing progression for pupils with complex learning difficulties has learning objectives, activities, resource ideas and links including some trialled with pupils. It is intended as a working document to be added to and amended so an evaluation section is included on the link web page which we hope schools will use to share their experiences and ideas to improve the package.

There is a model to help identify what computational thinking is for pupils with complex SEND.
