Computing Subject Leader: Mrs Emmeline Boothroyd

At Kaye’s, we understand and recognise that computing is an extremely important part of everyday life in Modern Britain and will play an immeasurable part in our children’s futures. Our society is constantly changing and a high percentage of work in the future will be computer based. We at Kaye’s aim to provide all children with the technology-based skills, creativity and enthusiasm to live and thrive in a world increasingly dependent on computing.

Our purpose is to ensure that children have a key understanding of how to keep themselves safe online and that they are able to use the internet in a safe and respectful way. Children will become a responsible, confident and competent user of information and communication technology.

We at Kaye’s, provide all pupils with an exciting, fun and high-quality computing curriculum. Our computing curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in digital literacy, computer science and information technology. These strands are revisited repeatedly through a range of themes during pupil's time in school to ensure that the learning is embedded, and skills are successfully developed. Our intention is that Computing also supports children’s creativity and cross curricular learning to engage children and enrich their experiences in school.

The National Curriculum

Online Safety

Online Safety is an integral part of the school curriculum.  From Nursery to Year 5, this is vital to help children enjoy the wonderful opportunities that our technological world can offer. Through our curriculum and other aspects of school life, we encourage children to celebrate what technology can offer us in a safe and responsible manner. In addition to the curriculum, we take the opportunity to raise awareness of online safety through national events such as Safer Internet Day.  We also intervene quickly if we are made aware of any online safety issues within our school community.

We aim to work in partnership with parents to provide a support network for children as they explore, communicate, play and learn online.  We endeavour to provide as much information as possible for parents through our school website.

Please visit our Parent's Online Safety page for up-to-date information.

Our online safety lessons incorporate resources from a range of key providers, including CEOP.  It is important to keep reviewing practice in response to the way technology changes.  We regularly seek advice from the Local Authority and use key websites to keep us updated.
