Overview

We welcome Craig Thompson to lead these subject leader network meetings.

Focus: The Autumn term meetings will include a focus on planning and implementing the computing curriculum in light of the Covid-19 lockdowns, when individual schools and individual pupils have had significantly different learning experiences. We'll explore some of the barriers and think strategically about what's needed as part of a Covid-19 recovery plan.

Each term the subject leader network meeting has a different theme and each session is highly influenced by current curriculum and technology exploration and developments. We hope the sessions will enable you to keep on top of these developments and help to inform your subject leadership role and classroom planning.

· Help you to keep up to date with national and local developments including resources developed as part of the free Cambridgeshire Progression in Computing Capability Materials

· Share examples of ways in which schools have built and developed their school curriculum for Computing, including planning in cross curricular opportunities.

· Provide you with the opportunity to network with teachers from other schools and share experiences, approaches and resources.

· Explore an aspect of the computing curriculum in more detail.

What Teachers Say

Thank you again for the training you delivered to us this week - we both found it extremely useful. and we were buzzing with ideas after we left the session. It was exactly what we were looking for. We are both looking forward to the next session.

I think the training was very carefully planned and pitched well to the participants. I can’t think of any ways to improve.

Craig is clearly knowledgeable in this area [online safety] and keeps up-to-date with resources to help with changes over time and I’m thankful for all of the resources and information he passed on to us which I will share with school staff.

Thanks so much for the fantastic session yesterday; staff have been singing your praises all day. I think we all want you to come and work at our school!
