Welcome to St Andrew and St Francis
CofE Primary School Securing Achievement for a Successful Future

Computing (ICT)


Our Computing curriculum is provided through the Purple Mash programme. Children have access to our full ICT suite, iPads and Chrome Books to enhance their online and electronic learning.

 

The Purple Mash Computing Scheme of Work is a comprehensive set of resources aligned to the National Curricula for Computing, Technology and Digital Competence. The Scheme of Work exposes children to a wide variety of digital tools, technological skills and innovations to enable them to become informed members of the digital community.

 

E-Safety forms a fundamental part of our curriculum as children learn how to be safe when online. Throughout the Curriculum, children learn how to keep safe and how to appropriately use technology in and out of school.

 

Students are provided with multiple platforms to enhance and complement their learning at home, as well as facilitate communication between parents and teachers. These include Purple Mash, Dojos, Microsoft Teams and Learning with Parents.

A new classification of online risk includes the 4Cs

The new CO:RE 4Cs classification recognises that online risks arise when a child:

  • engages with and/or is exposed to potentially harmful CONTENT;
  • experiences and/or is targeted by potentially harmful CONTACT;
  • witnesses, participates in and/or is a victim of potentially harmful CONDUCT;
  • is party to and/or exploited by a potentially harmful CONTRACT.

At SASF we are committed to developing an understanding of E-safety for both children and parents and carers. This covers both Internet based technologies and electronic devices such as mobile phones and wireless technology. We are keen to make children aware of both the benefits and risks of new technology.

 

SASF achieves this by ensuring that:

  • Pupils are supervised appropriately when they use the Internet.
  • Pupils are given clear objectives for Internet use.
  • Pupils are provided with lists of relevant and suitable web sites.
  • Pupils are aware of their responsibilities.
  • Parents and carers are aware of their responsibilities in relation to child safety on the internet. 
  • Curriculum planning identifies opportunities to enrich and extend learning activities via access to the Internet
  • Internet access is purchased through London Grid For Learning (LGFL), which provides a firewall that filters out inappropriate sites
  • We work with the external companies to ensure systems to protect pupils are regularly reviewed and improved.

It is important that parents and carers speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online. It’s essential to be realistic. Banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Education around safe use is essential.

 

Vodafone have produced a Digital Parenting Magazine which informs parents about the various technologies children are accessing today.
