E-resources created by West Hatch High School circulated to
other schools

Various resources, including E-Safety Messages and Computing Schemes of Work, created by staff at West Hatch High School, Chigwell, have been chosen by The TES (Times Educational Supplement) to be circulated to other schools.

Sara Trickey, the school's Head of Computing and ICT - responsible for delivering Computing, ICT and E-Safety education - moved to West Hatch in 2011 as Head of ICT with a background in Business and ICT.

She said: "When faced with the transition from ICT to Computing in 2013, I discovered a startling lack of resources were available for heads of department in a similar situation and so I decided to write and share my own!

"As a department we wrote a series of KS3 Computer Science Schemes of Work designed to have a phased roll-out over three years. The first of these was written by a former colleague, Selina Davis, and subsequent ones were re-written and adapted by myself.

"These resources have led on to me writing an article for the TES offering advice to other Heads of Department and also speaking at a Capita National Conference regarding the smooth transition from one subject to another.

"I am also in talks with PiXL to share my expertise with other school leaders."

After 7,431 downloads, the school's resources were selected by the TES resources team
to be distributed to Heads of Department across the country via e-newsletter.

In addition, the school's collection of E-Safety Information Leaflets for Parents, after some 8,292 downloads, have also been distributed.

West Hatch High School successfully achieved the E-Safety Mark in 2012 for its work in educating students, staff, parents and governors about e-safety.​
