Children are now born into a digital world, which undoubtedly gives them fantastic opportunities to learn; develop new skills and to keep in touch with family and friends. However, just like the real world, it is important young people stay safe and that you (as parents and carers) feel fully equipped to help them develop the knowledge and resilience they need for digital life.
Digital life comes easy but the implications can potentially hit hard.

Our Computing curriculum places your children's safety at its heart. All classrooms, from early years to year 6, explore the most up to date online issues in an engaging way and at an age appropriate level. We use planning and resources from 'Project Evolve', which have been developed in line with and to support statutory policy and the latest recommended guidance.
What is ProjectEVOLVE?
ProjectEVOLVE resources each of the 330 statements from UK Council for Internet Safety's (UKCIS) framework “Education for a Connected World” with perspectives; research; activities; outcomes; supporting resources and professional development materials.
The vibrant new content has been written by a team of experts here at the UK Safer Internet Centre. It’s up to date; relevant and engaging and moves online life education into the third decade of the 21st century.
We can never assume each layer, on its own, is 100% effective. However, used together, we can ensure we keep our children safe, informed and empowered.
