Welcome to the Computing section of the website. The documents below will tell you all about how we teach Computing at St Bartholomew's School. If you have any questions about the teaching and learning of Computing - please do get in touch.
These one page PDFs will show you the skills the children will learn in each Computing unit.
We take safeguarding and online 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 we had 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).
