Computing Curriculum Vision

At Bell Farm Primary School we value the contribution that technology can make for the benefit of all pupils, staff, parents and governors. We strive to provide safe opportunities in all subjects to motivate and inspire pupils and raise standards across the curriculum. Everyone in our school community will become lifelong learners equipped to meet developing technology with confidence, enthusiasm and the skills that will prepare them for a future in an ever-changing world.

We are a Digital Schools Member 

Our school is part of Parent Zone’s Digital Schools Membership programme, recognising our commitment to keeping our pupils safe online, and making sure we work with you and all of the school community to achieve this.

Keeping your child safe online

At Bell Farm we take every aspect of your child’s safety very seriously. Following work with parents on online safety at Parents’ Evening, we have decided to produce additional guidance, designed to give you advice on how to keep your child safe online. We will talk you through some of the risks children may face in the online world, how to talk to your child about e-safety, and guide you to further advice.  For more information, please go to http://bell-farm.co.uk/about-our-school/safeguarding/onlinesafety
