This is an integral aspect of our Computing Curriculum and many units can be linked to the content of the lessons and the National Curriculum and Education for a Connected World framework. Not all of the objectives in the Education for a Connected World framework are covered through our Computing Curriculum, as some are better suited to personal, social, health, and economic education (PSHE); spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development(SMSC); and citizenship or through enrichment days/weeks such as National Bulling Week. In addition to this, we have designed an Online Safety Curriculum to explicitly teach areas from the Education for a Connected World framework, so children are being taught about online safety regularly throughout the year. This ensures that through the Computing Curriculum, the Online Safety Curriculum or through other curriculum areas, the coverage required for the Computing National Curriculum is provided.
After the implementation of this robust computing curriculum, the pupils will be digitally literate and able to join the rest of the world on its digital platform. They will be equipped, not only with the skills and knowledge to use technology effectively and for their own benefit, but more importantly – safely. The biggest impact we want on our children is that they understand the consequences of using the Internet and that they are also aware of how to keep themselves safe online.
