Hello! My name is Mr Hughes and I am the Computing Coordinator at Sherdley. I joined Sherdley in September 2017 and have recently taken on the co-ordination of Computing from September 2022. I also lead Music and have responsibility for overseeing Lower Key Stage 2.
At Sherdley, we want our children to love computing. We want to show pupils the links between knowledge, skills and real-life employment opportunities and have no limits to what their ambitions are. We want our children to grow up wanting to be software engineers, video game designers, web developers or IT consultants. We want them to embody our core values and encourage them to dream big!
We work closely with IT consulting agency hi-impact to ensure that our computing curriculum has been carefully crafted so that our children develop their digital capital. We have made it our aim to ensure that children experience engaging, memorable computing lessons in our school. We want our children to leave our school with cherished memories and the ability to embrace the opportunities they are presented with in relation to computing and IT. Finally, and importantly, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely.
Our ambition is to enrich their time in our school with memorable, unforgettable experiences and provide opportunities that may normally be out of reach – we believe that this will pique our pupil’s interests and passions. We have invested in an extensive suite of equipment across school including iPads, Galaxy tablets, laptops, Beebots, Raspberry Pi's, Crumble boards and data loggers.
