Computing

Intent

 

At St Bartholomew’s our aspiration is for the children to be ready for the computing they will have to do in their next stage of learning and then later on in their workplace. Our aim is to fulfil the National Curriculum for Computing and for children to be confident, effective users of technology who can:

 

  • understand and apply the essential principles of Computer Science, including logic, algorithms and data representation.
  • use this understanding of Computer Science to think about tasks in computational terms; and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to complete such tasks.
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, to solve problems and complete tasks.
  • be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

 

At St Bartholomew’s we recognise the importance of being responsible and safe online; children are taught:

 

  • how to use the internet positively (including social media).
  • how to leave a positive digital footprint and why this is important as they grow up.
  • what to do if they are uncomfortable with any online behaviour or material they see.

Online Safety

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.

Online safety policy (agreed by governors February 2019)

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).
