Outstanding primary computing for all - face to face

CP005 Face to face course

Computing is for every child, and the school curriculum must allow for all children to succeed. Computing subject leaders can make inclusive, effective curriculum implementation happen, leading to success for all.

Some children seem to naturally flourish in computing, while others need more support to reach their potential. This CPD aims to give every child an outstanding computing education in primary school, opening up future study and employment routes and closing attainment gaps while building a coalition of learner support of teachers, peers and families. 

You'll consider how cultural and other influences affect outcomes in computing, including the impact on girls and other groups of children. Using a range of sources of evidence you'll examine the relationship between computing and the rest of the curriculum, leading to better integration of this relatively new subject. You'll plan how to raise the knowledge and digital skills of your colleagues, ensuring positive attitudes towards computing in all areas of the curriculum. 

You'll have time and support to consider how your school's computing curriculum would stand up to scrutiny, and how you can provide equitable and inspirational learning for every child in authentic, collaborative and engaging contexts.

This course is delivered as part of the National Centre for Computing Education.

Participants will:

  • Become confident when discussing the intent and impact of the computing curriculum
  • Plan how to motivate and support colleagues to teach excellent computing lessons
  • Develop teaching approaches that widen the appeal of computing, leading to creative and collaborative lessons
  • Recognise and overcome the barriers that some learners face in computing

This course is part of the Teach primary computing certificate.
