Welcome parents/carers of year 4, 5 & year 6 pupils! In LEO’s, pupils will begin to develop a confident approach to their learning, focusing on skills that will help them in the next stage of their educational journey.
As parents/carers you play an important part within this journey. Please support them by encouraging them, reading with them and sharing stories together, practising their times tables and spellings and supporting them with their homework.
Every child in LEO’s has unlimited possibilities and it is my job to help them achieve.

The Gender Balance in Computing Research Programme
LEO’s have been selected to take part in The Gender Balance in Computing (GBIC) research programme. This research programme has been funded by the Department for Education to support pupils to develop their computing skills and the aim is to improve pupils’ attitudes towards computing and increase the number of pupils who choose to study computing qualifications.
The Belonging project is the first in the series of GBIC research programme and it is a collaboration between the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT), the WISE Campaign (WISE), and the Department for Education (DfE). The project focuses on pupils, who are near the beginning of their learning journey in computing and the aim is to increase pupils’ feelings of belonging to the subject of computing so that they are more engaged in it and see it as a subject for people like them. More information will be provided in the coming weeks.
It is a very exciting opportunity for the pupils and will help contribute to understanding attitudes towards computing.
