Computing & E-safety
At Lea School, we recognise the importance of computing and digital literacy to everyday life and how it connects to many other school subjects; we also acknowledge that the successful teaching and acquisition of key computing skills as outlined in the National Curriculum 2014 – analysis of computational problems, evaluation of new technologies, responsible and safe use of information and communications technology and understanding of coding - are critical to the future careers and jobs of all of our pupils, after-all, we live in the digital age. Determined to develop a responsible attitude to the subject and foster a thirst for knowledge, we are guided by the following key values:
- Self-confidence - developing and building up children’s confidence so that they can safely use apps, software and hardware
- Responsibility – promote and encourage the responsible use of technology so that their digital footprints are of the highest standard
- Respect - to be aware and respectful of other users when interacting with all the platforms that they encounter at school and at home.
