Technology is everywhere and is changing the lives of everyone. We want to model, educate and equip our children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. Computing is designed to achieve strong outcomes, positive mental and physical health, resilience and identity: reflecting our vision of ‘life in all its fullness’.
It is our intention to enable all children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a insightful and effective way. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this.
Throughout the school each child has access to devices which they use on a regular basis, not only to enhance their computing skills but also throughout the curriculum.
Online Safety is an important element of safeguarding at our school. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard children from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Online Safety is taught to all children explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
Online Safety for Parents/Carers
We encourage parents and carers to talk to their children about how to behave safely when online, to ensure children remain safe when browsing at home. This section of our website aims to provide both parents and children with links to really useful advice on how to be safe when using the internet.
Parents/carers, teachers or anyone supporting the learning of children today need to ensure they are up-to-date with new technologies and actively look for resources to help ensure that children are using technology, including the internet, safely.
