Computing & E-Safety

The Computing curriculum incorporates a mixture of ICT and Web based lessons with computing lessons. Children learn skills, such as programming, in Key Stage 1, often away from a computer to start with, improving their skills and using computers more as they progress.

Click the link below to read about Computing in the National Curriculum, our approach to teaching and the different topics children will cover as the progress through our school.

The school has a range of computers available for children to use in each classroom. There is also a laptop trolley, tablets, chromebooks and e-reader devices for children to use in school. Teacher’s routinely explore different ways to enhance the curriculum using computing and ICT devices and approaches.

In Year 5 , children build on their understanding of how the Internet and World Wide Web came into being and the computer science behind how they function. The children did a fantastic job of presenting their learning and understanding in a poster.


E-Safety is taken very seriously in the school and is taught throughout every year group. In addition, each year children and families sign an ‘Acceptable Use Agreement’ outlining a sensible approach to staying safe whilst using digital technologies. We also maintain a clear set of guidelines for the safe use of web based technologies in our Online Safety Policy and Procedures.

Further resources and advice for children, parents and families about E-Safety can be accessed using the following links;
