A high quality computing education equips pupils to understand the world through logical thinking and creativity, including making links with mathematics, science and design technology.  Computing equips pupils to use information technology to create programs, system and a range of media. It also ensures that pupils become digitally literate to enable them to be active participants in a digital world.
At Woodside Junior we take pupil safety extremely seriously and therefore, in addition to the topics listed in the Overview, all pupils continually develop their understanding of how to remain safe online and when using technology through a mix of E-safety lessons and ongoing learning as part of other topics.  This is also supported by work carried out in PSHE lessons and through whole school initiatives such as, Internet Safety Week and parental workshops. We also have regular E-safety assemblies and visitors to highlight E-safety.
