The additional add-ons to the Online Safety Objectives are to ensure we are safeguarding our pupils and so that they are equipped with the knowledge the need to be able to face any digital worries that they may have in future life. The objectives are structured into units for each year group, each unit is underpinned by a key concept. Each Online Safety concept will fit in line with the Computing Curriculum’s Key Concepts and the PD&RSHE’s Key Concepts also. Learning objectives have been sequenced to ensure that they are progressive from EYFS to Year 6 and these will be covered during the first 15 minutes of EVERY computing session. These concepts have been sequenced to ensure that children are equipped with the appropriate knowledge and understanding to fit in line with the different concepts also. Some key areas of the Online Safety curriculum will be covered in both a computing session and form part of a PD & RSHE session too, providing children the opportunity to apply their prior knowledge and build upon their understanding. The online safety sessions at the beginning of each computing session will be group based, discussion tasks. Guided and Independent knowledge map assessments will be undertaken to ensure that children’s understanding of online safety is developing throughout their school life.
The below table outlines the Key Concepts taught across our Computing curriculum at Hoyland Common.
As a subject team, we value computing within our school and encourage our children to use different forms of technology, from laptops and iPads to the use of our school PODS. We allow children to access a wealth of resources and access these safely across the wide breadth of the curriculum.
