E-Safey Information and Learning
Here at Holy Spirit we take e-safety very seriously and as such we have included some informative websites you can visit for advice on e-safety for children. A lot of our pupils today are engaged with technology in a wide variety of ways. As well as using the internet for education, they also play games, socialise and invest a lot of their personality in social media and the ever changing place that is the online world.
Your child is likely to use technology in school and at home. In school we endeavour to provide the skills to navigate the online world safely. We deliver frequent online safety sessions and weave its messages throughout our whole curriculum.
You too can help keep your child safe online by applying parental controls. Parental controls are the names for a group of settings that put you in control of what content your child can see. Combined with privacy settings these can help you protect your children from the things they shouldn’t see or experience online. Open the links below to find out more...
Computing and ICT
Through teaching Computing and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) we aim to equip our children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. We enable them to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a successful and effective way. We believe the use of ICT skills is a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners.
Each year group from Nursery through to Year 6 have discreet skills based ICT lessons in their classrooms. Children also have the opportunity to use their ICT skills and knowledge across the curriculum. Each of our classrooms from Nursery to Year 6 is equipped with an Interactive Whiteboard, access to laptops and iPads.
Here are some useful links to assist children with their learning at home.
Below are our Computing and ICT Schemes of Work for each year group.
