Computing/Online safety

Computers are a huge and essential part of everyday life. Technology is developing at such a rapid pace; therefore, it is vital that children are equipped with the skill of “computational thinking”, so they are able to effectively participate in this ever-changing digital world.

 

The Curriculum

 

At the Duke of Norfolk School, Computing is taught both as discrete lessons and through other subjects. All learning is in line with the 2014 National Curriculum and taught through a variety of units based around Computer Science, Information Technology, Digital Literacy and E-Safety.  

 

Our aims in teaching Computing are to ensure that all pupils:

  • Can understand and apply fundamental principles and concepts of Computer Science.
  • Can analyse problems in computational terms, and have practical experience writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.
  • Can analytically evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, to solve problems.
  • Can use technology to enhance all their learning and progress across the curriculum.
  • Can understand how to safely use computing. 

 

Online Safety

Online Safety is taught throughout the curriculum, and the School Council have also led a number of assemblies highlighting some important issues. Our school’s internet is also filtered, which restricts access to unsuitable sites.
