In each classroom, we have a poster to remind the children of rules to follow for being safe online - SMART.
SAFE - Stay safe online.
MEETING - Never meet up with somebody that you've met online.
ACCEPTING - Accepting unfamiliar emails and attachments/links can be dangerous.
RELIABLE - Not everything that you read or see online is reliable. Check things first.
TELL - Tell a trusted adult if anything makes you feel uncomfortable or worried.
Computing at Summerswood
From September 2020, Summerswood pupils will be accessing Computing lessons as part of their topics due to the cross-curricular nature of Cornerstones Curriculum Maestro which we have adopted. The children will build upon their computing knowledge as they move through the year groups.
They will have the opportunity to complete activities that are 'unplugged' (i.e. not on a computer/device) such as creating algorithms and de-bugging for coding as well as creating content on a computer/laptop.
