School Vision For Computing
At Hopton we promote digital citizenship through modelling how social media should be used responsibly with a strong focus on creating a good digital footprint. Our facebook page demonstrates to the children how to positively use the internet to share joy and appropriate information.
The internet is essential in the 21st century life for education, social and business interaction. As children progress through the school their access to various types of technology increases and it stands to reason that their exploration and curiosity increases too. The positives of the digital world overwhelmingly outweigh the negatives, however children, schools and parents all need to be aware of various online risks. Alongside the embedding of e-safety in our curriculum, every year we partake in safer internet day. Which is a global event exploring the importance of creating a safer internet environment together. At Hopton we value the involvement of the whole school community for such an event and as such involve parents and carers in an e-safety meeting and hold, classroom based whole school activities.
