About Digital Leaders

Digital Leaders is a leadership programme for pupils in Year 5 and Year 6 at Handsworth.

Four pupils are recruited in Year 5 and these children continue as Digital Leaders until they leave Handsworth at the end of Year 6.

As part of the recruitment process, the Year 6 Digital Leaders devise questions for the application form, present a pitch to the Year 5 classes and – once applications are received – they shortlist and interview potential candidates.

During their two years as Digital Leaders, the eight pupils meet each week to:
  • Take stock of the digital equipment around the school
  • Discuss, plan and teach the Year 4 ICT Club
  • Plan and teach the Hour of Code to each class.
They also help to promote and inspire Computing across our school by running training sessions for staff, consistently modelling e-safety, leading assemblies, reviewing new technologies and filming events.

Teachers can book out Digital Leaders to help them in class or to show them how to use a certain piece of technology.

Our Digital Leaders for 2022/23 are:
