Conference schedule



Sarah Underwood, editor, ICT for Education 

08:35 – 09:00

Where next for computing?

Claire Lotriet, assistant headteacher, Henwick Primary School

The new computing programme of study isn’t actually so new anymore, we're two years in, so where is primary computing heading now? Claire will take a look at how the teaching and learning of computing – programming in particular – has developed in her classroom over the past two years by sharing examples and strategies that have been successful, and consider where it might go next. 

09:00 – 09:25

Excite, engage, empower

Karine George, former primary school headteacher

Some simple and practical examples of how to build effective learning that moves away from the constraints of the classroom and links learners to a wealth of expertise in order to facilitate conversations that enhance real learning in a real world.

09:25 – 10:05

ICT Reviews Live!

ICT for Education product reviews team
An independent product review session that will put products to the test and give you real insight into their capabilities. ICT Reviews Live! will be led by the ICT for Education reviews team.

10:05 – 10:40


 10:40 – 11:05

A secondary school approach to ICT

Michelle Alexander, St Ignatius College

11.05 – 11:30

What could be more important than e-safety?

Perry Perrott, head of education, BCS Learning & Development

Would you let your son or daughter cross the road without applying the Green Cross Code? So why do we allow this behaviour in the virtual world, one which is potentially just as destructive? We want young people to see the internet as a positive and inclusive place that respects people’s differences, but how can we achieve this in education and what challenges do we face?

 11:30 – 12:00   

Question time

Join the debate and discuss topical issues including the curriculum, budgets, CPD and more!

Moderator: Sarah Underwood 

Panel members: Claire Lotriet, assistant headteacher, Henwick Primary School; Michelle Alexander, St Ignatius College; Karine George, former primary school headteacher; Perry Perrott, head of education, BCS Learning & Development

More for less

In an entertaining, informative and updated session, Andy will share with you some of the many free and low-cost ICT tools that can enhance your work in the classroom. He will also present new ideas to help you get more for less.


Conference close

14:20 – 15:20

Interactive Education Sponsored Workshop: Is your technology supporting teaching effectively?

The workshop will detail how to combine digital technologies to deliver effective lessons and have a classroom of connected technologies and devices rather than a number of disparate technologies that work in isolation.
We will be demonstrating a range of the hardware/software that is on display on our stand with an experienced, qualified teacher to discuss matters from the teachers perspective.
This is a live workshop with demonstrations of connected technologies working together in a way that will work for a teacher. Teachers should attend this workshop because we will be showcasing a number of innovative techniques to combine and integrate classroom technologies to deliver more effective lessons and ease teacher workload.
Attend our workshop to get the opportunity to win a GV 50 visualiser

By car from the M25:

The easiest way to get to The Valley by car is to use the A2, accessed from junction two of the M25 (those heading south via the M1, A1 or M11 should head clockwise on the M25, signposted 'Dartford Crossing').
Heading into London along the A2, the dual carriageway becomes the A102M - the approach road to the Blackwall Tunnel. Leave at the junction after the A2 exit and take the right-hand exit at the roundabout - the A206 Woolwich Road.

After the major set of traffic lights at Anchor and Hope Lane and Charlton Church Lane, travel around second roundabout and take the last exit to drive back on yourself. Then take the first left into Charlton Lane. Cross the railway line and continue up the road, then right into Harvey Gardens. The stadium is on the left.

Access to Floyd Road and Harvey Gardens is restricted on matchdays.

Via the South Circular

Follow the A205 South Circular Road to Woolwich and turn left into the Woolwich Road at the roundabout for the free ferry. You should then turn left into Charlton Lane and proceed as described above.
From central London

From north of The Thames, take the A102 through the Blackwall Tunnel. Come off at the second junction and take the first exit at the roundabout. Go along the A206 Woolwich Road as above.
Train and Tube services

Southeastern runs train services to the railway station at Charlton, from central London in the west and north Kent to the east. The station is a short walk from the ground.
Frequent services depart from Charing Cross, Waterloo East and London Bridge, with limited departures Cannon Street. Some services come through Dartford continue to Charlton, while connections for others can be made at Blackheath, Lewisham and London Bridge.

A previous limited service from Victoria no longer operates and fans heading to The Valley from Victoria need to change at either Lewisham or Blackheath.
The Docklands Light Railway from East London connects with rail services from Greenwich and Lewisham to Charlton, while the Jubilee Line underground station at North Greenwich is a short bus ride from The Valley.

Travelling by bus
Numerous bus routes serve the ground. They include the 53 (Plumstead, Woolwich, Blackheath, New Cross, central London), the 54 (Lewisham, Catford, Beckenham, Elmers End) and the 161 (Chislehurst, Mottingham, Eltham, Woolwich, North Greenwich).

Others are the 177 (Thamesmead, Plumstead, Woolwich, Greenwich, New Cross, Peckham), the 180 (Thamesmead, Plumstead, Woolwich, Greenwich, Lewisham), the 422 (Bexleyheath, Welling, Plumstead, Blackheath, North Greenwich), the 472 (Thamesmead, Plumstead, Woolwich, North Greenwich), and the 486 (Bexleyheath, Welling, Shooters Hill and North Greenwich).

These services discharge passengers on the A206 Woolwich Road, or in Charlton Village, both a five-minute walk from the ground.

Parking at the ground

Free parking is available at the ground.
