Intent: Computing – E-Safety
Our school aims:
Through our Christian values, we aim for:
- Happy, kind individuals;
- Opportunities for all;
- Love of learning for life;
- Motivated children who can thrive and succeed;
- Empowered children equipped with the skills to flourish in the wider world;
- Resilient, respectful and responsible children.
The curriculum is designed with our pupils and the Holmer community in mind. It enables children to access and enhance their understanding of their home, their city and the wider community, developing their cultural capital and giving them opportunities and choices about their future and their impact as they progress through their school career and beyond. This will help them become successful members of modern British society, preparing them for the challenges and opportunities.
EYFS: “All schools are required to have regard to the government’s ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ statutory guidance.”
KS1: “Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.”
KS2: “Use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.”
What will be made, produced, performed, or published?
Children will use the knowledge they have secured on E-Safety and produce a piece of cross-curricular work, related to this curriculum strand.
This may be in the form of a fact file or in a less formal project using a range of appropriate technology to produce a finished piece of work
What knowledge will the children have embedded?
In the context of using E-Safety, children will be able to explain how to keep safe online.
They will also be able to explain what procedure to take if they have any concerns whilst online.
The children will know how to keep personal information safe, and why it is important to never share any personal information online to someone they do not know.

Here are some example questions that may be used to assess children’s understanding.
⇒ EYFS: How do we keep safe when using technology, such as: a tablet or laptop?
⇒ KS1: What must we never do when we are online playing games? What must we do if we have any concerns about something we see or hear? Who can you talk to about your concerns?
⇒ KS2: Why is it important to never share personal information over the internet to someone we do not know? What procedure must you take to report concerns? Why is it important to be respectful when online?
