Computing, ICT & E-Safety

We have invested greatly in technology. With an ICT suite, hubs of PCs or laptops in every classroom and banks of iPads, our pupils are not short on access to equipment. Our three key aims of this area of the curriculum are to ensure our pupils are:

  • Digital Citizens – who are safe and responsible.
  • Digital Creators – who are logical and creative.
  • Digital Communicators – who are digitally literate.

These aims are covered through the threads of data handling, multimedia, e-safety, programming and learning about the uses of technology in our everyday lives. Learning how to use ICT effectively goes on throughout the curriculum but learning about computing and how to create programs etc. is taught in discrete lessons.

Our pupils use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have an 'e-safety' curriculum to ensure our children learn of the importance of keeping themselves safe online and know how to do this.

Read our school’s E-Safety Policy.

See our Acceptable Use Agreement

At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.

Here are some useful downloads to help you to keep your children safe online:
