It was great to see over forty schools attending our end of year Computer Subject leader day. The focus for the day was looking at how we have revamped our Computing long term overview and developed a clearer progression path to support the teaching of computing throughout school. The delegates particularly liked how we have developed the teaching of online safety using Education for a Connected World, Today’s children and young people are growing up in a digital world. As they grow older, it is crucial that they learn to balance the benefits offered by technology with a critical awareness of their own and other’s online behaviour, and develop effective strategies for staying safe and making a positive contribution online.
The afternoon session was the launch of our STEM project loan boxes – these STEM boxes are full of resources, which will enable staff to deliver quality STEM lessons across school.
