CAS is a vibrant community of members supporting one another. One way in which our members like to offer support is by sharing resources. Over time CAS has built up a collection of thousands of member-created resources, which can all be accessed for free. 

Resources include lesson plans, teacher-focused subject knowledge enhancers, assemblies, parent workshops... the list goes on, and on!

Computing in the National Curriculum - A guide for Secondary Teachers

We developed this free guide to help secondary school teachers get to grips with the computing curriculum following the curriculum change in 2014.

The guide demystifies the programme of study and gives easy to follow support for planning, teaching and assessing computing.

Looking for help and guidance? Connect with the community

At its heart, CAS is about teachers supporting teachers through our various communities and forums. You can connect with other secondary teachers in the following ways..

Local Communities 

CAS has a network of local communities across the UK run by our volunteer Community Leaders and specialising in offering relevant local support to teachers. Communities can either be primary or secondary specialised or focus on both – called ‘Mixed Communities’.

Physical Computing Community

The Arm School Program and Computing at School together run our Physical Computing Community. This network provides training, resources, events and support with innovation days. 

The group enables teachers to enrich their curriculum through the use of devices such as the micro:bit, Crumble, Pico and Raspberry Pi.
