CAS Newcastle West Secondary

CAS Newcastle West Secondary is a centre of excellence for Computer Science. Led by Toni Pine, there are links with St Cuthbert’s Teaching School. The focus is on the stimulating and academic aspects of an extremely challenging curriculum area which has in recent years undergone major changes.

Our vision is that, in coordination with our strategic partners, we are able to offer regular, challenging and supportive opportunities for both specialists and non-specialists working within the remit of Computer Science.

The two fundamental areas that we will explore will be subject knowledge enhancement (for all levels) and fluency in exam practice (at both KS4 and KS5). In addition to this, we will be able to offer support for Primary transition, enrichment activities and STEM links from our strategic partners (Accenture, Siemens, Nissan, LEGO and CAS Master teachers throughout the region).

CAS Stockton Secondary

The original and best!

The first CAS Community in the North East continues to keep on keeping on. With the plethora of CAS Communities now available in the best part of the world, we tend to focus on the Tees Valley, though everyone is welcome from far and wide; we regularly have people travelling from Tyne and Wear, North Yorkshire and the surrounding areas.

We tend to move around so we don’t get too stale, but Mark is based at Egglescliffe School in Eaglescliffe, just past the bottom end of Stockton on Tees. We always try to include at least one practical workshop session at each meeting, as well as discussions and group activities to devise resources, create plans and share moderation.

At least one meeting per year is a joint meeting with the local CAS Primary Community, helping Primary and Secondary colleagues to share ideas.

CAS Sunderland Secondary

The CAS Sunderland Secondary Community is run by CAS Master Teacher John Lamb, and meetings are held at Monkwearmouth Academy.

The Community aims to build links between subject teachers across schools and key stages; to provide important information regarding the Computing curriculum and changes to qualifications; and to support with training and development needs.

It seeks to provide support in the delivery and assessment of qualifications across the range of exam boards (including visits/presentations by representatives of the exam boards), and to allow for opportunities for collaborative planning and assessment techniques and for smooth transition between Primary and Secondary.

It has ambitions to build a network of support amongst like-minded computing practitioners, and to build links with local computing/software/ networking organisations in order to enable career progression and pupil visits.

If you have any queries or ideas you would like to discuss for future meetings, please contact john.lamb@computingatschool.org.uk
