Computing & E-safety
At St Julian’s we consider computing to be an exciting and essential subject in preparing children for their place in society.
Our aim is to develop safe, responsible and competent learners, who are creative, curious and logical as they navigate, investigate and contribute to the world around them.
Will will your child learn in computing?
In Computing lessons, children follow a Cycle A/B from Purple Mash. Our computing curriculum is based on five areas of learning: Programming, Multimedia, Technology in Our Lives, Data Handling and E-safety.
Find the Purple Mash progression document for each year group here.

E-safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. We also want to help our parents and children improve their own understanding of e-safety issues so they can learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.
In October 2021 Androulla Nicolaou (our local Prevention Officer and Coordinator) lead a Parents Forum as well as assisting with KS2 workshops to support children, teachers and parents with how we can stay safe online in our modern society.
