    Hi everyone,

    I am transitioning back into the UK education system having worked internationally for a number of years. As such I was away when the UK seemed to transition from LEA schools to academies and National Curriculum syllabus changes in the ICT to Computing transition.

    I am aware of the GOV resources and outlined curriculum: https://www.gov.uk/government/publi...ulum-in-england-computing-programmes-of-study

    But also it is worded as if these do not need to be taught and are flexible. Can academies and independent schools really deliver Computing topics on whatever they see fit and pay little attention to the GOV outlined curriculum?

    Yes, although most look at their KS5, KS4 qualifications and go from there to ensure coverage and have fun at the same time.

    Long way from the old day of National Curriculum sample lessons!

    Sorry, I didn't have time to read your whole post but I'm sure you'll think of some topics your students will find fascinating :)
