Digital Competency Framework (DCF)

Digital Competence Framework 'how to' video

Description

Digital competence is one of 3 cross-curricular responsibilities, alongside literacy and numeracy. It focuses on developing digital skills which can be applied to a wide range of subjects and scenarios.

At St Bernadette's we follow the Computing Unlocked scheme of work for IT skills from Nursery to Year 6. Click HERE for more information. 

The children develop these skills further and apply them in a cross-curricular way which address the expectations and requirements of the Digital Competency Framework (DCF).

 

The Framework, which has been developed by practitioners from Pioneer Schools, supported by external experts, has 4 strands of equal importance, each with a number of elements.

  • Citizenship – which includes:
    • Identity, image and reputation

    • Evaluating and improving.
