Curriculum Impact

 

We offer the best possible support for all of our pupils, including our EAL children. Skills in Computing develop each year. 

 

Our staff use baseline assessments to regularly assess what the children know as the topic progresses and inform their future planning.

 

Assessment information is integral to our monitoring cycle.  Our monitoring cycle is developed at the beginning of each academic year.  Monitoring in Computing includes: lesson observations, work scrutinies and pupil voice.

Our friends from Google came in to teach us how to stay safe at home online.

 

THE FUNDAMENTALS

The Internet Legends Code

 

BE INTERNET SHARP

Think Before You Share

Good (and bad) news travels fast online, and children can sometimes find themselves in tricky situations with lasting consequences. But what can they do to prevent this? The answer: understand how to share smartly with those they know – and those they don’t.

 

BE INTERNET ALERT

Check It's For Real

People and situations online aren’t always what they seem. Internet Legends know how to tell the difference between what’s real and what’s not.

 

BE INTERNET SECURE

Protect Your Stuff

Personal privacy and security are as important online as they are in the real world. Keeping valuable information safe helps children avoid damaging their devices, reputations and relationships.

 

BE INTERNET KIND

Respect Each Other

The internet amplifies everything: good things seem more exciting, bad things seem much worse and can hurt – a lot. A great rule to live by online, as well as off, is ‘treat others as you would like to be treated yourself’. Children can have a positive impact on others and stop bullying in its tracks by refusing to join in.

 

BE INTERNET BRAVE

When in Doubt, Discuss

When children come across something they're not sure about online, they should feel comfortable talking to a trusted adult. Adults can support this by showing they're open to talking, even about difficult or embarrassing things at home and in the classroom.
