Computing Curriculum

Our programmes of study are linked with the three strands of the Computing National Curriculum; Digital Literacy, Computer Science and Information Technology. We teach the topics under each strand half termly.

Our aim at Southbury is to provide access to a range of technology throughout the primary curriculum to enable pupils to prepare for the rapidly changing world of technology. Pupils use technology to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsibly, creatively and without discrimination.

Online Safety

The Internet is an amazing place which can help us in our real lives, provide us with entertainment, allow us to communicate and help us learn new things. However, there are times where they may be risks that come with its use. We recognise social media, internet and other communication, computer games and applications frequently used by the children and discuss and identify the potential behaviours and risk indicators of unsafe internet use.

Safer Internet Day

In February 2017 we took part in ‘Safer Internet Day’. The theme was 'Be the change: Unite for a better internet'. As a school we joined together to think about ways we could make the internet a safer and better place for all, especially children. The children from Reception –Year 6 each designed a jigsaw puzzle piece showing how they are positive online or how they thought they could make the internet a better place. We put the jigsaws together to show how our actions fit in with the actions of those around us.
