SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS
The DfE is funding support for schools that wish to improve or update the teaching and learning of computing. The National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) has been set up to offer this support, which includes:
- bespoke 1:1 support from a Subject Matter Expert (half a day)
- support with planning, resources, and assessment
- access to the NCCE's Teach Computing curriculum (KS1 - 4)
- tailored CPD for all staff
- free online courses
- face-to-face and remote courses with a bursary of £220 for completing a course*
(*the first teacher from each school is eligible for a one-off bursary for a course completed remotely or face to face and taking place within school hours)
To access this offer email:

Recently, we have had a lot of questions from schools about preparing for home/remote learning. If you have no email accounts set up for your children, then you can access the free DfE funding to get Google Classroom or Teams set up. https://schoolleaders.thekeysupport.com/news/digital-education-platform-scheme/ If you would like to ask any questions on which of these platforms to choose and the differences between them, then please feel free to get in touch. Another great option for primary schools is using Seesaw. Seesaw is an online journal platform which is free to use and requires minimal setup.
Please contact us for support about Remote Learning.
