The introduction of the Computing curriculum in England aims to equip all pupils with the knowledge, understanding and skills to use information and communication technology creatively and purposefully. A key aspect of this lies in being digitally literate. Online technologies play a huge role in everyday life and so providing a broad and balanced e-Safety education at each key stage is vital to ensuring that pupils can navigate the online world safely and positively.
Childnet have published four guides for Key Stages 1-4 to highlight the key learning aims related to e-Safety in the Computing curriculum and signpost to some key resources that can be used in the classroom to help deliver these aims. It is not a requirement to use all the resources listed, and some resources can be used to deliver more than one e-Safety message.
The guides provide schools with a fantastic starting point for providing e-Safety teaching that meets the requirements of the new computing curriculum.
You can find the guides (in Prezi and PDF format) on the Childnet website
