Upcoming Event - Safer Internet Day 2023
On Tuesday 7th February, children at Stoneydelph will once again be joining in with Safer Internet Day, which focuses on how to keep yourselves safe and aware in an ever increasingly digital world.
The day is coordinated in the UK by UK Safer Internet Centre and this year the theme is 'Want to talk about it? making space for conversations about life online.'
Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote in Stoneydelph Primary School, and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year.
To find out more information on this, please use the website listed below:
Please also keep your eyes out for online safety updates, guides and information which are posted to the school story on Class Dojo.
If you have any concerns or questions about keeping your child safe online, please do get in touch with the school through your child’s class teacher, Mrs Parsons or myself (Mrs Phillips) as the Computing Subject lead in school.
In line with the 2014 national Curriculum for Computing, our aim is to provide a high-quality computing education which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. The curriculum will teach children key ‘powerful knowledge’ about how computers and computer systems work and how they are designed and programmed, which will enable children to become informed and active participants in our increasingly digital society. Learners will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers.
We intend that by the time children leave Stoneydelph Primary School, they will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: computer science (programming and understanding how digital system work); information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information) and; digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully). The objectives within each strand support the development of learning across the key stages, ensuring a solid foundation for future learning and beyond. Our aim is that every Stoneydelph child leaves us with sufficient knowledge to acquire knowledge and to challenge and reassess claims within computing itself.
At Stoneydelph Primary School, the computing curriculum is delivered through a combination of a bespoke cross-curricular scheme of work as well as through weekly discrete computing lessons which together provide coverage in line with the National Curriculum. This bespoke package of learning facilitates progression across all key stages within the three strands of computing: digital literacy, information technology and computer science.
Each week, children from KS1 upwards have an hours discrete computing learning, which move children through a scheme to develop and practise their typing and mouse control skills as well as developing specific skills in the three key areas of information technology: word processing, presentation software and data handling. Computing projects are being introduced to school this year to more discreetly teach, develop and embed other areas of the computing curriculum from further information technology to computer science in line with a curriculum supported by Teach Computing and STEM Learning and will ensure that systematic progression is being made by each and every child.
Children have access to a wide range of hardware, software and resources which aid them in the acquisition of key computational skills and knowledge. Wider curriculum links and opportunities for the safe use of digital systems are considered in the wider curriculum planning of each year group. The importance of online safety is shown through regular teaching, school displays and through taking part in both anti-bullying week with a focus on cyber bullying and the annual Safer Internet Day activities. All children now have access to weekly digital literacy lessons using the Computing HUB or other computing resources.
Our approach to the curriculum results in a fun, engaging and high-quality computing education for all children.
Computing has a high profile at our school and as a result children become confident users of technology, who can use it to accomplish a wide variety of goals both in school and at home. Our children are confident using a wide range of hardware and software and are diligent learners who value online safety and respect when communicating with one another.
Children develop secure and comprehensive knowledge of the implications of technology and digital systems and how these are important in a society where technologies and trends are rapidly evolving. They are equally as able to apply the British values of democracy, tolerance, mutual respect, rule of law and liberty when using digital systems.
