At Redhill one of our Computing aims is to develop the children's understanding of how digital systems work and for them to become digitally literate individuals. We know that the children will need educating in the use of the internet to be able to do this. With new technologies emerging daily and the need to communicate online through use of blogging, social networking and gaming, we know that the children will need to be taught how to behave on line. The breadth of issues classified within e-safety is considerable, but can be categorised into three areas of risk:
content: being exposed to illegal, inappropriate or harmful material
contact: being subjected to harmful online interaction with other users
conduct: personal online behaviour that increases the likelihood of, or causes, harm
Our computing scheme of work educates children from nursery through to year 6.
If you have any concerns with E-safety/Awareness, please get in touch with your child's teacher.
