Computing, SEN and inclusion

Louise Hindmarch, Newcastle Bridges School


This session aims to look at ways we can support learners with SEN access the Computing curriculum in a fun and engaging way, relevant to their ability and focused on inclusion rather than exclusion.

Louise Hindmarch's biography

Louise is the Maths and Computing Coordinator at Newcastle Bridges School, where she coordinates the curriculum from EYFS-KS5 across 10 very different sites across Newcastle and Northumberland.

Louise supports other schools in the area with developing their curriculum and believes Computer Science is open to all students to study, no matter what their ability.
