Project ID - TIS001157
Coding @ Cranmore Coding is currently a popular topic for many of our pupils. We require a tutor to come into school and support class teachers in providing fun based coding lessons for pupils. This is an excellent opportunity to share experience and good practice and will benefit students, pupils and staff in the school. The student tutor will be supported by a class teacher in all sessions.

Extra Information

Cranmore IPS is a grant-maintained integrated primary school located on Finaghy Road North. The school draws pupils from a wide catchment area across south Belfast, west Belfast and beyond. As an integrated all-ability primary school we aim to provide a happy, secure environment in which children can learn effectively to realise their full potential as unique individuals. This aim permeates the ethos of the school, the teaching styles and approaches, the pastoral care arrangements and the discipline policy of Cranmore. As children have different abilities, aptitudes and needs, their performances will vary from their peers but every opportunity will be given for children to experience success. Positive encouragement and praise for all pupils regardless of gender, colour or creed will enable them to develop intellectually, socially, morally and spiritually and become full contributing members of the school community. Further information about the school can be found at www.cranmoreips.co.uk
