Our aim is that our children will be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of IT. The curriculum teaches them to be cautious and safe users of internet-connected technologies, as befits our modern age and community.
Digitally confident learners equipped with modern Computing knowledge will:
• Understand how information technology, data systems, and the internet function
• Understand and be able to apply key programming concepts
• Design, create and manipulate various digital artefacts and media
• Competently apply operational skills to many types of technology
• Be cautious and safe users of screen and internet-based services
• Explain knowledge and understanding using key vocabulary
At Nansledan School, Online Safety is taught regularly throughout the year, beginning in Early Years and continuing all the way up to Year Six. We use Project Evolve and a variety of other sources to cover the eight areas set out by The UK Safer Internet Council’s Education for a Connected World.
The Education for a Connected World framework describes the Digital knowledge and skills that children and young people should have the opportunity to develop at different ages and stages of their lives. It highlights what a child should know in terms of current online technology, its influence on behaviour and development, and what skills they need to be able to navigate it.
Education for a Connected World focuses specifically on eight different aspects of online education:
1. Self-image and Identity
2. Online relationships
3. Online reputation
4. Online bullying
5. Managing online information
6. Health, wellbeing and lifestyle
7. Privacy and security
8. Copyright and ownership
