Computing & Online Safety
Being able to use technology effectively, and safely, is a vital skill in the modern world.
At Coleridge, we want our children to use computing to learn, create and communicate in meaningful ways that enhance their lives. Our computing curriculum ensures that the skills taught develop year on year and equip our children for life in the digital world.
The skills our children learn are set out in three main areas:
Computer Science (CS)
How computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed.
Information Technology (IT)
The purposeful use of existing programs to develop products and solutions.
Digital Literacy (DL)
The skills knowledge and understanding needed in order to participate fully and safely in an increasingly digital world.

Children at Coleridge are provided with a wide variety of opportunities to increase their awareness of potential dangers online and to develop the skills needed to act safely. We ensure children gain an understanding of what it means to behave respectfully toward others and to know that they, themselves, have the right to be treated respectfully as well.
