Developing your skills and confidence
Developing confidence and a thorough understanding of the computing curriculum is key.
Developing confidence in the use of equipment and how to embed all areas of computing within your school curriculum and ensure progression is fundamental to engagement.
We offer whole school CPD through INSET or staff meetings, or can work alongside teachers using a 'team teach' approach. Teachers see first hand how to implement skills and develop confidence in managing computing in their class.

We can't wait to help
you get started.
Get the most out of the equipment you have and ensure it is used to develop basic skills.
Look at how to develop and embed computing in your curriculum.
Computing begins in the EYFS setting. Although it has not mandatory we do believe to give children a strong start that 'computational skills' can be and should be taught in the EYFS setting. Equipping children with the skill to investigate and engage with technology is crucial to building a confident approach to using technology in day to day life.
Understanding the Computational Thinking Approach builds key skills such as exploration, perseverance, working with others, tinkering, developing children's ability to confidently problem solve.
Training supports teachers to tweak and adapt their current curriculum to encourage and embed computational skills. Through the use of 'plugged' and 'unplugged' activities children can develop key skills which support and encourage school readiness.
Key Stage One
Using computing to enrich art. Making the most of apps/software.
Identify apps that support teaching.
Develop stories through animation. Use stories, topics to enthuse children and consolidate work taught.
Use imaginative ways of developing children's understanding of algorithms.
Develop and embed skills in the Key Stage One curriculum. Get the most out of the KS1 curriculum supporting teachers with their knowledge and skills using software and apps to confidently teach each part of the curriculum.
Fundamentals of Computer Science
Key Stage Two
Develop citizenship to focus on digital safety.
Looking at how to embed computing in other subjects.
Developing awareness and engagement in music using apps.
Confidently using platforms as a means of paperless teaching , recording and assessment.
Setting up and developing projects using the crumble kits. Adding progression through the use of physical computing.
learn how to develop projects and embed them in your curriculum.
Develop your confidence and understanding of scratch. How to develop a sequence of progressive lessons throughout Key Stage 2.
Map out your skills and progression in Key Stage Two. Get support to develop your knowledge, skills and understanding of the expectations of this key phase. Embed skills across the wider curriculum and look at how to develop key skills in computing supports children in becoming digital leaders.
