ICT and E-Safety
Merrydale Junior School uses the Switched on Computing scheme. It includes six flexible units for each year group covering:
- Computational thinking
- Computer networks
- Communication and collaboration
The internet is a fantastic place overflowing with knowledge, games and communities of people, and, just like pupils across the country, the pupils here at Merrydale Junior School spent a great deal of time using the internet within school and at home. This is why it is important pupils at MJS learn how to be safe when browsing online and becoming members of online communities..
In school, children learn about E-Safety through a scheme of lessons along with taking part in activities around Safer Internet Day. We also encourage parents/carers to talk to their children about how to behave safety when online, to ensure pupils remain safe when browsing at home.
Our children know to report any inappropriate content, contact or conduct they encounter online to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) by visiting this page and clicking our report button below.
