Tie Intent of Computing at Kirkburton

Tie Implementation of Computing at Kirkburton

We have discreet timetable time for the development of computing but our approach is also to integrate computing into all lessons: the use of laptops and other hardware such as cameras and iPads is as much part of our learning tools as pencils and pens. Subject-specific software, from one-off programmes to learning platforms, support teaching and learning across all years. The children develop their skills, starting in EYFS and KS1 with mouse control, keyboard skills, saving and printing work. They draw pictures, write and use the internet to carry out research. They then progress to more complex skills such as data analysis and coding. Pupils will use technology safely and identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns.

We place emphasis on developing children’s understanding of how to use ICT safely and responsibly and ensure online safety is promoted regularly to children and families. 


 Online – Safety 

Learning about staying safe online is very important. At Kirkburton First School we make sure our pupils are aware of some of the risks to safety that are online and what to do to stay safe. We have a set of rules which the children are expected to follow at home and in school to make sure they stay safe online. These rules can be viewed below and should be followed when using all kinds of technology such as mobile phones, games consoles and home computers. 

Our Internet and E-mail Rules:

  • We use the internet safely to help us learn. 
  • We learn how to use the internet. 
  • We can send and open messages with an adult. 
  • We can write polite and friendly e-mails or messages to people that we know. 
  • We only tell people our first name. 
  • We learn to keep our password a secret. 
  • We know who to ask for help. 
  • If we see something we do not like we know what to do. 
  • We know that it is important to follow the rules. 
  • We are able to look after each other by using our safe internet.
