The new curriculum for 2014 & beyond This brochure outlines Lambeth City Learning Centre’s offer for 2013/2014 for primary schools that have a Service Level Agreement (SLA) subscription. The programme has been designed with reference to the draft national curriculum programmes of study for 2014 and to the current national curriculum. The programme is split into specific support for delivery of the new computing programmes of study, and sessions that enable integration of new technologies across the curriculum (Technology-Enhanced Learning – TEL). As further information about the new curriculum emerges, we may produce amendments and additions to this publication.

Using your SLA entitlement All schools within the City Learning Centre (CLC) traded service must identify a lead coordinator to oversee the use of the SLA entitlement. The coordinator’s role is to make best use of the SLA, ensuring that it aligns to the strategic development of the use of learning technologies within the school and to the school development plan. The SLA coordinator will also be responsible for communicating information from the CLC to colleagues in school. All liaison regarding the CLC offer will be made through the lead coordinator.

Bookings A separate form will be sent to schools for the SLA coordinator to book the full SLA activities allocation. It is recommended that you discuss your school’s requirements with a member of the CLC team. CLC staff members are available for meetings throughout Term 6 to help coordinators complete the form and make best use of the SLA. If your school would like to meet with a member of the team, please email Kim Morrison

Pupil Workshops at the CLC Most packages contain a number of centre-based sessions for pupils. These practical days take place at CLC’s Clapham centre. Although each session is led by a CLC staff member, the class teacher is expected to take a leading role in teaching and organising the session. These workshops have been designed with reference to the draft national curriculum programmes of study and to the current national curriculum. Sessions have been split into specific support for delivery of the new computing programmes of study, and sessions that enable integration of new technologies across the curriculum (technology-enhanced learning – TEL).

New for 2013/2014 is the option to have a CLC tutor work in school alongside teachers in the classroom or to support teaching assistants in more targeted work. Please see page14 for details.

Project Bundles NEW for 2013 - 2014 CLC Project Bundles are for schools that want to use their SLA entitlement to support a specific area of development or a specific project. All packages are created in discussion with the lead SLA coordinator.

Introducing iPads

Code: PB01

This package provides curriculum support including advice and training on the use of specific Apps whilst also providing advice on security and restriction settings and training on the technical aspects of managing multiple devices including imaging, synchronisation, file sharing and printing and projection options. The package will be created in consultation with your school and will include staff training, technical consultancy and class sessions either at the CLC or in school. It will be created in discussion with the lead coordinator, but a typical Bronze Package could comprise the following: 2 x Consultancy sessions, eg: • Technical consultancy including advice on deploying apps, applying settings, sharing data, imaging, wireless connectivity, and projection on interactive whiteboards. • iPads and Evernote – Using the tablets for assessment, observations and digital portfolios 3 x Pupil workshops - in school or at the CLC CLC tutor working alongside class teacher 3 x Loans: • 1 x iPad loan to trial variety of apps • 2 x Free choice of loan 2 x In-school twilight sessions eg: • Getting the most from your iPads to support children’s learning • iPads for filmmaking 2 full-day CLC CPD (choose from brochure)

IBM Robo Challenge

Code: PB02

For the last six years the CLC has partnered with IBM to run The IBM Robo Challenge. The project invites ten schools to put forward a small team of students (about six per school) from Years 5 and 6 to come together to take part in a competitive programming day using Lego NXT and its software. The school must commit to establishing a group of children to take part in the competition. These pupils will be supported by IBM mentors. The final event, on a Saturday in March, is fun, challenging and very rewarding. The pupils will be put through their paces with a series of challenges including programming robots to dance, racing and navigating a predetermined route, and presenting the team’s strategy to an unfamiliar audience. Although only a small number compete in the event, whole class activity can be done in preparation. In order to take part, schools would need to commit the following from their entitlement: • 1 x Lego loan • 1 x CLC twilight • 1 x In-school consultancy (eg technical trouble shooting) • 1 x Full-day pupil workshop in school or at the CLC Please note, The Robot Challenge will be heavily subscribed. Priority will be given to those schools that have not been involved previously.


Project Bundles Design and implementation of the New Computing Curriculum

Code: PB03

Recommended for primary teachers who have recently taken on leadership of ICT and Computing

The new computing curriculum provides an opportunity for schools to rethink the teaching of technology in the primary classroom. With an emphasis on computational-thinking, the programmes of study require schools to strike the balance between developing a knowledge of networks, the internet and the web and embedding a deeper conceptual understanding of the broader principles around computing. This package of support will combine consultancy, training in school, loans (for physical programming) and some whole-class sessions (in school or at the centre) to ensure that schools are fully prepared for the new curriculum demands in 2014. The package will be created in discussion with the lead coordinator, but a typical Silver Package could comprise the following:

2 x In-school twilight for whole school staff, eg: • Getting to grips with the new computing curriculum • Algorithms and Robots for KS1 4 x CLC CPD, eg: • • • •

Computing – Programming and Computing Computing – The Internet New to Leadership in ICT/Computing ICT/Computing Subject Leaders Forum

4 x Pupil workshops either at the CLC or in school, eg: • • • •

Games Design for KS1/KS2, Understanding networks and the Internet, Robots and Computing for KS2 App Creation KS2

2 x Consultancy sessions, eg: • Designing your new computing curriculum • Computing and assessment 4 x Loans, eg: • 2 x Robots (eg Pippins or Lego NXT) • 1 x Minibooks with programming software/Makey Makey and Raspberry Pi • 1 x Free choice


In School Support These in-school sessions bring some of the CLC workshops into your school. Some sessions are designed so that the class teacher can work alongside a CLC tutor and others require that small groups of children are taken out of class to work on a specific task. For these sessions, it would be beneficial if a teaching assistant could support the CLC tutor to ensure that work can integrate into school practice. Some of these sessions may require schools to download specific software onto school machines. Sessions cannot run if the necessary freeware is not installed and tested on the school system. All workshops must be booked as full days.

Starting with a brief exploration of the networks that exist within school or in the home, this session will help children conceptualise the infrastructure of the Internet and how this is used for the transference of data. This session is very practical and involves some physical activities. A large space (eg the hall) will be required.

This conference is morning only but can be combined with the practical blogging session in the afternoon (see below) to make a full day.

Schools are increasingly discovering the value of creating school blogs, both as a way of developing the school’s online profile and as an opportunity to involve children in digital writing. During the past year, Lambeth CLC has conducted in-depth research with a small group of teachers, to investigate issues related to blogs and children’s writing. Teachers from the research project will present case studies of how class blogs have changed their teaching and improved how children learn and write. Researcher Myra Barrs will present findings from the research exploring a range of themes including the role of audience, differences between writing on blogs and writing on paper, how to frame blogging tasks, automaticity in writing,

Working with a CLC specialist, this session will guide participants in using the NAACE Self Review Framework tool to audit provision and prepare for gaining the ICT Mark. The SRF framework provides an invaluable structure for assessing and improving how technologies are used across the curriculum, how professional development is supported and how resources are deployed. The CLC strongly recommends the SRF as a way to support strategic thinking about the role of technology within school. The afternoon will be left free for colleagues to begin work on their application supported by a CLC tutor. The afternoon session is optional and the CPD can be booked as either a full day or half day (see page 28 for half-day option)

We deliver careers guidance services to years 7 – 13 through one to one guidance interviews, small and large group work and drop-in sessions. We can help your school develop or maintain high quality careers education provision by providing expert support for strategic planning, quality assurance and careers curriculum development. Careers Quality Awards are endorsed by DfE Statutory Guidance and CfBT can support you to achieve one to demonstrate the quality of your careers education and guidance provision. We make sure that your staff, students and parents are kept up to date with the changes in careers and labour market information. We can support your school by collecting, collating and reporting to you on your student destinations

CfBT has a wealth of experience across all areas of school effectiveness and management at both Primary and Secondary phases, including Special schools. We provide consultancy support in areas such as whole-school review, appointments and induction, assessment for learning, pupils’ achievement, CPD programmes, curriculum planning and subject reviews. This support can be delivered as a focused input or spread across the year.

Housekeeping Satisfying school demand


Every effort will be made to ensure that schools are given their first choice. However, on occasion it may be necessary to provide an alternative allocation. This will be done in consultation with SLA coordinators to ensure that the alternative is agreeable and appropriate for the school.

The CLC will endeavour to operate a ‘no cancellation’ policy. However, unavoidable circumstances such as illness may occasionally require sessions to be cancelled. Where this occurs, the CLC will make alternative provision at the earliest opportunity. The CLC will not cancel CPD provision if numbers are low, although it may offer a more cost-effective alternative or occasionally postpone to increase numbers.

Service standards The CLC is accredited as an Apple Regional Training Centre and is an official trainer for Purple Mash. Staff at the CLC are qualified CEOP Ambassadors and ThinkUKnow Trainers. The CLC was recently shortlisted by NAACE (subject association for ICT) for an Impact Award for the quality of its CPD and were named as Technologists of the Year 2012-2013 by the Association of Learning Technologists. The CLC has recently been accepted into the Network of Excellence by Computing at Schools as a Lead Centre for the teaching of computing and computer science.

Complaints If a complaint is made regarding the CLC service, it will be investigated fully with a response made within five working days. Complaints should be made by email to Julia Lawrence
