Essential knowledge for primary computing subject leaders. Improve your understanding of the role and the subject. Identify where your school is now and plan for improvements.

This course is for computing subject leaders who are new to the role. More experienced subject leaders are invited to attend just for the afternoon (sessions 3 and 4) if they wish – please let Gillian Bratley know.

Why should I attend?

You will learn how best to lead the improvement of computing teaching and learning, and to provide professional support and development to others. Identifying where your school is now in computing, will enable you to identify and plan for improvement in your school. Building on this knowledge, you will develop a detailed action plan to guide the effective use and development of resources, assessment approaches and staff development you will enable yourself and school leadership to accurately understand the strengths of computing in your school, and sustainably plan for improvement.

What will the course cover?

  • Session 1 | The role of the subject leader – considering the common, and less common, roles undertaken by leaders of computing, helping you to clarify your role through discussion with others in a similar position.
  • Session 2 | Developing an outstanding curriculum – curriculum intent and implementation, with consideration of age-appropriate progression. You’ll engage with the Teach Computing Curriculum (or your own school’s curriculum), planning how to integrate it into an appropriate programme of study in your school.
  • Session 3 | Assessment of computing – you’ll evaluate a range of generic and subject-specific approaches to assessment of computing, both formative and summative, to drive attainment in the subject.
  • Session 4 | Managing change – change doesn’t just happen, you need to develop a plan, bring people on board and measure success. This session applies tried-and-tested approaches to help you make positive impacts across your school, making the most of the talent and support available.
