Forest Oak School has implemented a new Computing curriculum that has been developed by the Nation Centre for Computing Education. Throughout the entire curriculum, ‘Computing systems and networks – IT around us’ is covered which looks at all aspects of safety online. The lessons are differentiated effectively and age appropriate.

During year 10 and 11, Children at Forest Oak undergo a WJEC Entry Pathways Qualification. One of our mandatory modules titled ‘Online Basics’ covers a vast amount of learning based around E-safety, including: email safety, understanding the internet and working safety online.

Online safety is also covered throughout PHSE at Forest Oak.

Keeping safe Online and Managing online information are covered from years 6 onwards. In years 10 and 11, a module titled ‘Online safety’ covers topics such as ‘Public Private, Keeping Safe Online, Gambling and Managing Online Information’.
