At Beacon View Primary Academy, we believe that all children need to be equipped with the necessary technological skills to participate effectively and safely in the digital world. Our high-quality computing curriculum, ensures that all pupils have the opportunity to become effective users of technology who can:

  • Understand and apply the essential principles and concepts of Computer Science, including logic, algorithms and data representation;
  • Analyse problems in computational term, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems;
  • Evaluate and apply information technology analytically to solve problems;
  • Communicate ideas well by utilising appliances and devices throughout all areas of the curriculum.

All of our pupils from EYFS to the end of Key Stage 2, have access to a wide range of technology including iPads, laptops and interactive whiteboards. This enables them to become creative problem solvers, who are digitally literate and able to communicate effectively with the wider world both for today and in the future.

At Beacon View, we also have a Device Loan System in which families can borrow a Chromebook to enable their child to access our home learning online. This is offered to remove the barrier for families where multiple children are trying to share a single device or use small screens on mobile phones.

Staying Safe Online

All children learn how to stay safe online through their PSHE and computing curriculum, which is revisited weekly and every time we use the computers at school.

Whilst we are working remotely more often, and therefore most children have increased their screen time, we've put together a recap of their learning from in class and some useful websites and guides to support parents and carers.

National Online Safety

National Online Safety have produced lots of useful guides for parents, especially with advice on how to control the apps or websites that your child wants to use.

Remember that most social media platforms, such as Tik Tok, Youtube and Instagram, all have an age restriction in place of at least 13 years of age.

Social Media Platforms safety



CEOP have released Home Activity Packs with 15 minute activities parents and carers can do with their child(ren) to support their online safety when at home. The packs are differentiated into different age groups (e.g. 5-7 and 14+).

They can be found at: home-activity-worksheets/
