The BITE Faculty has developed a new, tailored Curriculum, which provides everything our students need to help improve their life chances. This programme of study, which reflects the transition to computing in the National Curriculum, will incorporate Computing, ICT and Enterprise elements. This scheme of work is relevant to the modern student, as well as challenging.

It will provide our students with a strong foundation for further study at GCSE and beyond in areas like ICT and Computer Science.

Our new curriculum will provide topics that are fun and engaging for all our students. It has been introduced to raise standards of learning and develop a breadth and depth of skills, knowledge and understanding needed by our learners throughout their time at the Academy.

Our new curriculum will also incorporate aspects of these five key areas below:

  Digital Literacy


  Technology in the World

  Safety, Security and the Law

  Technical Understanding

This will provide our learners with a bigger picture of how technology has and can develop or have an impact on their lives. There will also be exciting opportunities to learn how to use and apply computer-programming languages to develop games. Students will learn how to use Small Basic and Kodu.

At the end of Key Stage 3, we will prepare students for Year 10 courses related to ICT and Computer Science. The aim is to give them experience using a more independent style of learning, opportunities to learning, opportunities to learn an additional programming language such as Python, to solve a variety of computational problems and to teach them the necessary skills that will facilitate their smooth transition onto KS4 courses.
