On-line safety is the child protection priority for the 21st century!
We take safeguarding and on-line safety very seriously at St. Bartholomew’s School. We want to work with you to keep your children safe. Please be aware that if we have any concerns about children accessing inappropriate computer games or social media sites, we will contact you to discuss our concerns.
Our Growing up Online workshop was very successful.
Julia stated "You had a fantastic turnout - the highest I've had in any school."
92 people attended in total. 53 children from Classes 3 and 4, 33 parents, 4 members of staff and 3 governors.
On March 8th 2017 we followed this up with a workshop for parents of Classes 1 and 2. We found out that there is You Tube for kids which provides a safer way for children to access appropriate You Tube content. We were introduced to Kiddle (an alternative to Google which is an easier search engine for children to use). We also looked at the Tech Safe App (for under 5's), this includes links to great content to start conversations with your children about safety online - Digiduck and Smartie).
St. Bartholomew’s School uses the Herts for Learning Scheme of Work for Computing.
It provides a creative approach to delivering the computing curriculum and is fully aligned with the 2014 National Curriculum for Computing. It supports the teaching and the development of computing, building computer science capability and digital literacy for current and future learning.
The scheme is organised into four age phases: EYFS, Key Stage 1, lower Key Stage 2 and upper Key Stage 2.
The content is broken down into five strands and further organised into learning themes. In the EYFS, these are designed to blend with early years practice. For Key Stage 1 and 2, one learning theme is provided per term.
Our children have computing lessons each week and apply the skills taught in these lessons in other areas of learning.
