At Abberley our computing curriculum is divided into these areas: Computational Thinking, Digital Literacy, Online Safety, Computers and Hardware. Pupils are taught through a progressive curriculum and computing is taught as an individual subject. Some areas of the National Curriculum for Computing are covered in other subjects e.g digital images in Art & Design, digital music composition in Music.
At Abberley, we are passionate about teaching the importance of staying safe while online and have allocated a whole unit per year group to teach age appropriate lessons about HOW we can achieve this. The values group 'Safety' are also responsible for ensuring all pupils are aware of dangers using the computer, but also celebrating how wonderful it is too. The Safety Group plan and deliver collective worships throughout the year to reinforce E-Safety messages and as a school we annually celebrate 'National Internet Day'. Abberley have created their own 'E-safety Film' to share some of these important messages about online safety.
