We believe in offering a Computing and IT curriculum at King Edward VI Balaam Wood Academy that
considers the National Curriculum and the need to prepare students for the GCSE IT and Computer Science
specification. In an ever changing, technologically advancing society it is imperative that we equip our
students with the desired skills needed for their future life and career. With new technological jobs emerging
constantly that have not previously existed, it is vital that our students are digitally literate, logical and
adaptable thinkers who have the knowledge and skills to meet the ever changing and new demands of the
future society. The Royal Society has identified three distinct strands within computing that all complement
each other – they are Computer Science, Information Technology and Digital Literacy. Each component is
vital when preparing our students for their futures within the digital world.
