Primary Computing Development Group

Ideas, support, sharing and networking for Computing subject leaders


What is it?

There is a Facebook group. It's at: 

All Alliance schools are welcome to join.

Who are the Development Group Facilitators?

Tony has 10 years teaching experience, working in both Lancashire and North Yorkshire.  He is currently teaching a Reception/Year 1 class although he has spent the majority of his career working in upper KS2.  Tony moved to Applegarth Primary School in September 2013 and made an immediate impact in moving the school forward in the way its teachers use technology to support learning in the classroom.  He uses digital leader workshops to trial new technologies and is keen to support others with delivering the new Computing curriculum.
