SEND Computing Scheme of Work

We are pleased to announce an update to our Sheffield SEND Computing Scheme of Work for learners with special educational needs, covering the range from P5 to the old national curriculum level 2+.

“We are all absolutely loving the scheme. It has made a huge difference to how we deliver computing and how confident we feel about it.”  
Park Community Academy

It contains units organised into the following strands containing a large number of activities at 3 levels. It also now includes a number of extension units for more able pupils.


SEN Computing overview of units

Each unit contain a list of suggested lesson ideas with a large number of resources, plus progression statements for pupils working at P5 to key Stage 1 level where appropriate. Online Safety is embedded across the strands with extra activities in an appendix. It is suitable for supporting non-specialists to deliver computing. See below for sample units and long-term plans.
