The Digital Competence Framework sets out the expected skills for each school year group in 12 elements across 4 strands. Choose a school year below.
A couple of notes of caution here:
- We all know that ability differs greatly within a year group. There's no one-size-fits-all. The Framework skills are what most pupils are expected to achieve in each year group. Some will go further, others will need to work on simpler skills.
- Since the Framework is new to schools, many pupils will not have learnt such thorough technology skills in their earlier school years. For the first year or two there is nothing wrong with a Year 3 teacher working from some of the Year 2 elements, or a Year 6 teacher looking at some Year 3/4 elements. Start at the level your pupils are at and work from there.
