The 2014 national curriculum introduced a new subject, computing, which replaces ICT. Computing is an essential part of allowing children to discover new skills and develop their understanding of the world. The change in curriculum gives schools the chance to review and enhance current approaches in order to provide an even more exciting and rigorous curriculum.
