Computing is taught using the Teach Computing curriculum which has been designed by experts using the latest pedagogical research and teacher feedback. Due to our mixed age classes, we blend whole class or year group specific teaching depending on the topics taught.
We take the online safety of our children very seriously. As well as being delivered as part of our Computing curriculum, it is taught through our wider PSHE curriculum as well as through annual Safer Internet days. At the beginning of the school year, children and parents are asked to read and sign our ‘Acceptable Use’ forms (Acceptable Use Policy
and Acceptable Use for Children
) to ensure expected behaviours around the use of technology are shared, understood and agreed.
Children start using computers and access the internet from a very early age, whether it is at home, at school, through ipads or mobile phones, via gaming apps or accessing Youtube. It is vital children and parents know how to protect children and young people and keep them safe when online and free from abuse.
