Computing at Greenwood:
At Greenwood school we take online safety extremely seriously. Technology is a fantastic invention and we encourage children wherever possible to use technology in their work.
We are very lucky to now have a computing suite for use of children from year 1- year 6 and thanks to Pups our fundraising group a bank of computers in every FS classroom. The children also have access to banks of iPad's which support them with their learning.
In order to keep us safe online all pupils who use a computer have had an agreement (Pupil Accesible User agreement) signed by our parents or carers. We remind our children of the online safety rules whenever we use computers. If a child does not return their online safety agreement then they will not be able to use a computer.
If a child does not use a computer sensibly and follow the rules of this agreement both in and out of school then they may be banned from using a computer or offered limited access rights.

Helping keeping your child safe online
At school we use the SMART rules to keep the children safe when working online. These are displayed in all areas where there is computer access.
Please click below to see the SMART rules for Key Stage One and Foundation Stage.
In Key Stage Two these rules slightly different and discuss the ways children should stay safe both inside and outside of school.
We have also completed a comprehensive review of how we use technology in school. This is review regularly. Please find a copy of the document below.
