Developing your primary school's computing capability and leadership

Due to the unique nature of the subject, leading computing in primary schools can be challenging, particularly for non-specialists and it is vital that subject leaders can access regular, external support. Through half termly sessions, subject leaders will effectively assess their current computing capability and identify next steps to enhance the subject, which can be linked to the school’s wider development plans. Opportunities will also be provided to share good practice and network with other local subject leads.

Outcomes

This professional development will support teachers to:

  • identify strengths and weaknesses in their school’s current computing provision
  • highlight next steps in developing computing across the school
  • regularly meet with other local subject leaders to share good practice.
