Computing was previously ICT in schools. The links below will hopefully provide some guidance and support around the new curriculum, along with websites to support your child with e-safety.
Devon & Cornwall Police and Dorset Police are working together to raise awareness of the risks to young people online and to encourage them to talk to a trusted adult if they are approached.
The campaign, called “Looks sus? Tell us!”, featured a series of animations. They are also designed to encourage children and young people to be suspicious of, and to report, particular kinds of approaches on social media or via other channels such as online gaming chat.
There is also an animation aimed at parents to encourage them to have those difficult conversations with their children.
