Computing and Internet Safety
This has been a year of change with regards to the use of technology in our school. We are currently reviewing our use of technology in the classroom as a tool for learning.
At school, we have a class set of laptops and ipads to support our curriculum. We also have state of the art interactive boards to support teaching and learning. We teach the national curriculum including programming.

CEOP (the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) has published guidance for young people on the use of the internet. You can see this at www.thinkuknow.co.uk, which had sections for children of different age groups.
We take internet safety very seriously and have internet safety lessons built into our curriculum throughout the year. We discuss issues such as leaving a digital footprints, being a good online friend, following the SMART rules and what to do when things go wrong.
The Governors have updated our user agreement for computing and internet safety. It can be found on the Policy page and below. This lays out internet expectations at school and the support we ask from home.
If you would like to discuss any issues relating to internet safety, please contact the school.
