Find out more about our Computing Curriculum

We have had a lot of interest in our computing curriculum and an ever increasing number of schools across the country have bought it. However, not everyone likes to download samples online and we know some people like to watch videos. So, if you are interested in our computing curriculum and want to know more about how the assessment tracker works, this is for you! Watch our video here! It's quite a large video, so may take a minute or two to load. We are working on uploading a smaller file very soon! Click the image to play.

Guest of honour, new sponsor and great prizes at the Wigan Primary Computing Awards
Wednesday, 04 March 2015 13:58

You'd better get registering soon if you would like to join us at our Computing Awards Celebration Event on the 25th June as we are running out of capacity! The event is to be held at St Peter's Pavilion, from 1.00pm - 3.15pm and details have already gone out to Wigan schools. If you missed them, however, and want to join in you can find more details and the entry form here.

So far, we have 9 or 10 schools signed up with another 5 'making up their minds', although, as it is free, with great prizes, the Mayor in attendance and a special guest making an appearance, we don't really know what there is to decide! How can you not join us? :-) If you are a school still making your mind up, have a read of this from last year's event and it might help!

We are thrilled this year to have the support of ABtec Computer Solutions who are sponsoring the event and also giving us a great prize. ABtec offer a range of technical support services to schools and work in a large number of schools in the local area and beyond. We are also pleased that they will be assisting with our technical support on the day, as our technician from last year is now at university and unable to attend, although he did a great job! Thank you Peter!
