At Ightenhill Primary School, computing is taught as a discrete lesson during the afternoon. Computing skills are taught using a variety of different technology including computers, laptops, tablets, cameras, bee bots and voice recorders. The skills taught within the lessons are then applied to different areas of the curriculum such as Maths, English, Science and PE.
Here is our curriculum for the year 2017 - 18. We focus on different computing skills whilst talking about different areas of E-Safety.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
The UK Safer Internet Centre – a partnership of three leading charities; Childnet, the South West Grid for Learning and the Internet Watch Foundation – provide resources for children, schools and families, and tools for getting involved at www.saferinternetday.org.uk.
The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet.
