We developed our whole-school computing scheme of work in collaboration with the e-Learning and Information Management (eLIM) Service. It is based on the Somerset Model for Primary Computing with five areas of learning:
How do we plan for progress in computing?
Our computing scheme of work was designed in collaboration with the SSE eLearning and Information Management Services, and the planning is in accordance with their 'I Can' statements which are both used to assess progress against, but also to inform planning to ensure progress.
How do we promote e-safety?
ActiveBytes provides discrete units of e-safety learning in computing lessons, but we also embed e-safety across the curriculum with half-termly assemblies, certificates of achievement, routine use of the Project Evolve resources and regular communication with the school community on current issues that may affect our learners. The ActiveBytes 'I Can' statements for e-safety for each year group are below.
As a key part of our Relationships and Health Education (RHE) offer and to ensure our pupils can thrive within the connected world which they are a part of, we embed the objectives from Education for a Connected World (which is a framework to equip children and young people for a digital life) across the curriculum wherever possible. It is also embedded into the ActiveBytes offering.

We ensure that children are exposed to a variety of different technologies to reflect the diversity they will experience in later life and education, embedding it into daily practice where possible:
Kindle Fire HD 7 (used mainly in UKS2)
Apple iPads (used mainly in KS1)
Chromebooks (used mainly in LKS2)
