If you have any comments, feedback or suggestions, do get in touch here: blog.withcode.uk/about/contact/
The activities on live.withcode.uk can be used as free, standalone activities without needing to login. They also work with compete.withcode.uk to allow teachers to set up groups so students can compete against each other while teachers can track their progress.
For more information, do join the conversation on the Computing At School Community site
You don't need an account to watch the videos or complete any of the activities on live.withcode.uk but you will need a (free) account to take part in the weekly scoreboard competitions via compete.withcode.uk
Please see the instructions above for details on how to set up a (free) school account if you're a teacher and you want to set up groups to track the progress of your students.
Accounts are free (and will remain so). Teacher, student and school information is stored securely in the UK. Passwords are not stored in plaintext - you can reset them but I don't know what they are. Web page access is secure and encrypted
Student initials will be visible to other students in the competition. Full names are only visible to teachers of those students. There is no private messenging facility. Email addresses linked to accounts will only be used if students request a password reset
Competition winners' schools will be notified rather than individuals so students will not be asked to share addresses or contacted personally (unless they go to my school)

If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please get in touch - data protection and safeguarding is hugely important and I want to get it right.
