We aim to give the children a varied and safe experience of using computer devices. In every year group, the children are taught the importance of e-safety and are regularly reminded on the safe use of online communication and use of the internet as well as having e-safety lessons to ensure they feel confident when using the Internet, and know what to do if they come across something either inappropriate or uncomfortable. We also invite parents to work with us on this aspect of the curriculum.
Children will be taught to:
§ design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
§ use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
§ use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs
§ understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the world wide web; and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration
§ use search technologies effectively
§ use a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information
§ use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content.
