Court De Wyck have begun using Barefoot Computing to teach children vital computing skills. Barefoot uses the National Curriculum aims to structure their lessons which are the following:
All years will be taught about e-safety and staying safe and secure online as well as lessons on coding, data management and statistics and online design. Children will also develop their research skills in other subjects such as English, Geography and History using computers and/or Ipads. These lessons will be embedded by teachers into their planning.

E-Safety at Court de Wyck
At Court De Wyck Church School we are working with staff, pupils and parents/ carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies in enhancing learning, encouraging responsible use of ICT and following agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks.
We use ICT as an essential tool for enhancing learning and in the embedding of e-safety across the whole school curriculum. We ensure that pupils are aware, through e-safety education, of the potential e-safety risks associated with the use of ICT and mobile technologies. All e-safety concerns are dealt with sensitively and effectively; that pupils feel able and safe to report incidents and that pupils abide by the school’s e-safety policy.
We have a set of SMART rules which the children are expected to follow at school and at home in order to stay safe online, these rules can be viewed below. We encourage these rules to be followed when using all kinds of technology such as mobile phones, games consoles, computers etc.
