Computer Science Training for Schools
Our Lady's is recognised by the Computing at Schools organisation as a Lead School for Computing and our specialist Computing Teacher and Computing Leader Mr Edmondson is also a CAS Master Teacher. These are the Network of Excellence’s “Practitioner Champions” – experienced, high-performing classroom teachers with a passion for the subject; enthusiasm, energy, and a desire to support others. CAS Lead Schools take a particular lead for Computing education through their curriculum and extra-curricular engagement with the subject and commit to take a lead for the subject in their local area. If you are a school in the local area and would like help and support in developing your Computing provision please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about CAS Lead Schools can be found here. Below is what other teacher's said following one of our recent training events...
"I now have a greater understanding of the different ways for using Scratch and how it can be used in different subjects. It definitely improved my subject knowledge as Computing coordinator at my school.”
(Paul McHugh, St Anne’s RC Primary School)
"After Jamie’s training I feel more confident in showing apps to the KS1 team and will be better able to explain how they can help their children learn and progress; giving us stronger computational thinkers by the time they reach Key Stage 2.”
(Claire McVittie, Brookside Primary School)
"The training was great to practically have time to practise using I Can Animate/Green Screen and iMovie. I have taken away a number of new apps to introduce with the FS/KS1 students.”
(Fiona Sanderson, Manchester High School For Girls)
“As a complete beginner, I found Jamie’s training very informative and enjoyable”
(Mel Bennett, St Andrew’s Primary School)
