At East Dene Primary School we want children to be excited about computing and we recognise that computing supports children in the ever-changing world of technology, encouraging them to become digitally literate which will then enhance their knowledge and support them being active participants in the digital world.
At East Dene Primary we promote the use of computing and technology within all areas of the curriculum. We feel that embedding computing into the wider curriculum will allow children to be creative with their use of technology.
We feel strongly about Online Safety at East Dene and we want all children to feel confident when using all aspects of the internet. We use the National Online Safety Scheme of work to ensure all children receive the most up to date knowledge to support them in making sensible, well thought-out choices when online.
National Online Safety NOS covers 8 key Topics
- Self-image and identity
- Online relationships
- Online reputation
- Online bullying
- Managing online information
- Health, wellbeing and lifestyle
- Privacy and security
- Copyright and ownership
We work with the CLC who come in and deliver family learning sessions based on computing. The CLC also come into school to work with different year groups on projects such as green screen, Comic Life and making videos to present our work.
During the Spring term 2021 KS1 will be working with Junior Jam to develop their coding skills.
