Digital Leaders

Who We Are

We’re the Digital Leaders. We’re a team of Year 6 pupils who are the most skilled, confident and talented users of technology at Churchfields Junior School. We all love computing and technology, and our goal is to inspire our classmates and the community.

What We Do

Every week we meet to discuss our latest projects and share ideas. We lead assemblies, organise competitions and visit classes to support our friends and classmates.

 

We never stop learning, because technology is always changing. Because of this, we attend workshops around London to develop and improve our programming skills.

 

Each summer term we also organise applications and interviews for the next wave of Digital Leaders. Being a Digital Leader is a popular role, and so there is always great interest amongst the rest of the school! We have a very high profile, with important duties in assemblies and Computing lessons, and everybody wants to be part of our important group.

Online Safety

Find out how to stay safe online by visiting our Online Safety page. You’ll get access to lots of useful websites and resources for both parents and children.

Our Aims

  • To support our classmates in Computing lessons and assemblies.
  • To be technology role models for our classmates.
  • To represent our school in the IT community.
  • To help make our school the leading school in computing.

Future Projects

We have lots of projects and ideas for the future. Here are just a few:

 

  • A Digital Churchfields – the upper school already design 3D models and buildings in Computing lessons. We plan to use these skills to recreate our school in 3D, allowing visitors to tour our school building without ever leaving their armchair!
  • Online Safety – as part of raising awareness of online safety, we run assemblies and competitions.
  • Coding in Industry – we plan to visit software developers in the City of London to find out how we can prepare for a career in programming and technology.
  • Computing Club – to run alongside the after school coding club, we will soon create a new club, where our friends and classmates can learn advanced programming. We’ll be leading this club and sharing our skills.
