Information about E Safety

Internet Safety lessons are taught to all children at least once every half term.

 

This year all children from Nursery to Year 6 took part in Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 6th February 2018. The children listened to stories, watched videos, discussed their own Internet use and talked about how to stay safe online.

 

As part of our Internet safety discussions we have talked about gaming. Children should be aware of the PEGI rating for games as this shows them what is suitable for their age range and the games that will be enjoyable to play. For more information on PEGI ratings please click here.

For more information on Internet safety and how to help your child stay safe please see the following websites:

Computing at New Bolsover

Different aspects of the computing curriculum are taught from Nursery to Year 6, however this is taught more formally from Year 1.

 

In the EYFS the children have access to a range of technological toys and age appropriate software. These toys and games can be selected independently during self-select time.

 

Years 1 to 6 follow the Twinkl and Wokingham schemes of work alongside each other to form a varied computing curriculum. This allows the children to learn a range of computing skills, from coding and writing their own algorithms to digital art.
