We have just completed our summer CPD overview.

We are particularly looking forward to our new Digital Leaders workshops. The aim of these workshops are to develop pupils, giving them the opportunity to embed further in depth skills and knowledge using such programs as Scratch2, blogging and animation, which they in turn will be able to share their knowledge alongside the class teacher.

We are also working in partnership with the Bolton CAS team and JTRS hosting a free workshop using of LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 in creating inspiring and outstanding computing lessons for KS2 pupils.
