Online Safety

 

At Nantwich Primary Academy we aim to be at the forefront in keeping your child safe online. The internet is an amazing resource that children should be taught to use critically and safely.

All children must understand the risks of using the internet yet not find it a scary place. Through educating our children we ensure they are safe users.

Computing

 

Through our computing curriculum at Nantwich Primary Academy we aim to give our pupils the life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a creative, as well as responsible and safe way in order to flourish. We acknowledge that technological devices and software are an integral part of everyday life and that society is becoming more and more reliant on technology to guide, innovate and develop practice in many sectors of work, education, and daily life.

We will strive to keep children safe on line and provide them with the knowledge and tools to do so. We will also empower parents, carers and the wider community with up to date information regarding keeping children safe online.

We want children to become autonomous, independent users of computing technologies, gaining confidence and enjoyment from their activities. We want the use of technology to support learning across the entire curriculum and to ensure that our curriculum is accessible to every child.  Not only do we want them to be digitally literate and competent end-users of technology but through our computer science lessons we want them to develop creativity, resilience and problem-solving, and critical thinking skills. 

We want our pupils to have a breadth of experience to develop their understanding of themselves as individuals within their community but also as members of a wider global community and as responsible digital citizens. We will use IT and computing to empower staff to work more efficiently, creatively and effectively to improve their teaching and the assessing of the pupils in their class.

AIMS

Not only do pupils use technology to access the broader curriculum as consumers and creators but pupils also take part in a constantly evolving and exciting computing curriculum the aims of which are outlined below.

  • Provide a broad, balanced, challenging and enjoyable curriculum for all pupils.

  • Meet the requirements of the national curriculum programmes of study for Computing at Key Stage 1 and 2.

  • Develop pupil’s computational thinking skills that will benefit them throughout their lives.

  • Use ICT and computing as a tool to enhance learning throughout the curriculum.

  • To equip pupils with the confidence, skills and capability to use digital tools and technologies throughout their lives.

  • To stimulate interest in new technologies.

  • To enhance and enrich learning in other areas of the curriculum by cross curricular use of ICT

  • To develop the understanding of how to use computers and digital tools safely and stay safe online.

NATIONAL CURRICULUM

The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Can understand and apply the fundamental principles of computer science, including logic, algorithms, data representation, and communication.

  • Can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.

  • Can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.

  • Are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

OUR VISION FOR TECHNOLOGY
 

We aim to create a safe and supportive environment, where all can feel empowered to independently develop their own skills and knowledge, taking risks where necessary in order to raise aspirations.

We have identified technology as a key tool to enhance learning and support in unlocking our children’s potential.

KEY APPS

SHOWBIE

Showbie allows the children to share their work electronically with their class teacher. Teachers can then send children feedback via voice note. This means the children are receiving more personalised feedback which will help them progress. Staff share key knowledge mats to help the children retrieve key information and support them in becoming Historians, Geographers and Scientists.

KEYNOTE

Keynote allows the children to showcase their work and present it in a fun and interactive way. Teachers are also using Keynote to develop exciting lessons. Ask your child about how they have used Key Note in school.

NUMBERS

Our Digital Leaders in school have developed an endless note taking template for Maths and English using this core app. Children are now able to take notes and refer to these whenever they need to retrieve or recap some of their previous learning.
