Digital Leaders                    

What is a ‘Digital Leader’?

A Digital Leader is a pupil who is part of a Digital Leaders Team within school, whose role is to help promote, support the use of and further the development of Computing and Technology in school.

This Year, the Ferrars Academy Digital Leaders are made up of a boy and girl representative from each KS1 class, totalling an amazing 12 Digital Leaders! They meet every Friday lunchtime with Miss Rashid and Miss Harris.

Over the Year the Digital Leaders will be hosting whole school competitions to promote the Artist of the Half-Term, run workshops to build confidence and support children who find aspects of computing difficult, research and use new educational apps to support Teaching and Learning in the classroom and deliver assemblies to support knowledge and understanding of Online Safety; along with supporting our Online Safety event in February.

The Digital Leaders are excited to work together and with the whole school to develop skills and knowledge in computing.

The children will also help to support online safety day, and create "How to videos" to support younger children with use of computing technology in school.

Online Safety Day 2023

We supported Safer Internet Day 2023 to celebrate staying safe online. This year's theme was 'Want to talk about it? Making space for conversations about life online' to put children and young people's voices at the heart of the day'. 


The children had a exciting week full of activities surrounding Online Safety. Key Stage 1 even go to attend an exciting workshop where they created a 'Online Safety Gameshow' which they performed to an audience! 


2Animate Competition- Spring 2 

Digital Leaders have launched a 2Animate competition where children will need to create a short animation between 30 seconds - 1 minute to explain a concept in Science, a time in History or a place/ feature in Geography. Children can submit their work via the Display boards for their age group. Find out more information herehttps://www.purplemash.com/site#tab/home/2animate_competition We can't wait to watch your entries and award prizes in our assembly!

Past Projects:

Every Thursday the Digital Leaders meet and take on new tasks. Recently we have been helping some of our younger pupils to use the computers. In addition to this, we have been designing our very own computer game for a competition on Purple Mash!
