At Northfield Primary school we provide children with rich, deep learning experiences that balance all aspects of computing. Technology is such a big part of our everyday lives it is important that children are taught the skills to be able to be safe and effective in today's modern technological world. Computing at Northfield has deep links with every subject we teach, whether it be mathematics, science, history, literacy, art or DT, it is an essential tool to learning. Our computing curriculum allows children to be introduced to a wide range of technology, including laptops iPads and interactive whiteboards, allowing them to continually practice and improve the skills they learn. This ensures they become digitally literate.
At Northfield we take Internet Safety extremely serious. We have an E-Safety Policy that provides guidance for teachers and children about how to use the internet safely. Every year group takes part in half termly lessons on E-safety and the children at Northfield understand how to stay safe when using technology.
