Online Safety through the Computing Curriculum - 2 day residential STEM course 2-3 October

 

The Online Safety curriculum is a key aspect of the National Computing Curriculum and a school’s (e)Safeguarding provision. Ofsted now expect all staff to have a good understanding of the risks, how to respond to these appropriately within school and teach an appropriate Online Safety curriculum. They expect the pupils to understand the risks, behave responsibly online and respond to inappropriate content and contact appropriately. This course will introduce attendees to the benefits and potential risks of using a range of connected technologies in and out of school for staff and children and how to evaluate how effective your whole school systems are. It will focus on understanding what an appropriate Online Safety curriculum should include and enable attendees to develop an Online Safety scheme of work that meets these needs and the unique needs of their school community including staff. There will be significant time spent on investigating and evaluating a large range of materials to use in the classroom

This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course. Course fees vary for participants outside the UK. Please contact enquiries@stem.org.uk for more information.

(e)Safeguarding in the Primary School - 3 day course 18 Oct, 31 Jan, 23 May

Whole school (e)Safeguarding sits firmly in the area of safeguarding and expectations from the DfE and Ofsted have been clearly documented in publications from both organisations in recent years. In many schools the responsibility of (e)Safeguarding has been passed to the Computing subject leader and unless they are a member of the SLT they are not in a position to lead this area effectively. Early in the course we discuss and identify clear roles and responsibilities for (e)Safeguarding across the whole school ensuring there is a team of relevant staff to take responsivity rather than an individual.

The course content will include:

• Understand the risks relating to (e)Safeguarding in the primary setting and identify roles and responsibilities within the staff at your school.
• Using the SWGfL 360 degree safe online audit tool to evaluate your school’s (e)Safeguarding provision.
• Reviewing your present provision with regard to passwords, secure login to networks, connectivity, filtering, monitoring and Wi-Fi.
• Investigating and exploring a range of curriculum resources to enable the design and delivery of an appropriate Online Safety Curriculum meeting the needs of the new Computing Curriculum.

Over the three days, attendees will create, deliver and evaluate a detailed (e)Safeguarding action plan leading to achieving the SWGfL Online Safety Mark.

Location - The innovation Centre Bradford, 34 Peckover Street, BD1 5BD

Cost - £375 subscriber schools, £450 non-subscribers
