At Northway, the computing curriculum, including E-safety is given high priority. We follow the computing scheme 'Switched On Computing' across the key stage 1 curriculum. 

We aim to ensure that all children understand and apply the fundamental principles of computer science, digital literacy and information technology. 

Each term all children will also learn about online safety and the importance of this. These sessions aim to teach children how to be responsible, competent and confident users of ICT, always ensuring they are safe. We have made this cross curricular and linked it to stories to help the children understand what 

Through 'Switched On Computing' pupils will be taught to understand what algorithms are and will create and debug simple programs. Children will use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content and recognise common uses of information technology beyond school.

Technology is always used safely and respectfully and children know where to go for help and support if they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies. Children will engage in computing days such as 'Safer Internet Day' where the whole school has a specific internet focus and learning is planned and delivered around this theme. We also run workshops for parents.
