Developing a Computing Curriculum – UK

Here in the UK many schools have started to create and implement curriculum that includes the specification of the Computing Programme of Study as created by the UK Department for Education.  In my school I have started this process by developing a whole new Key Stage 3 programme that includes elements of IT, ICT and Computing throughout the span of the three years 7, 8 and 9.  I have already started to map our new Sequences of Work (SoW) against the required outcomes.  As we develop this I have spend considerable time reading widely and engaging on professional conversation to ensure I am directing our developments along the right pathway.

How have others approached this topic?  What have they done and which Curriculum providers are they using or are going to use?  These are the questions that are perpetually in my mind.  The slide show below is one I have recently found that explores both the process of the redevelopment of the curriculum as well as what some ideas for the content of a new curriculum could be.
