E-safety Scheme of Work: Year 1 - 6

E-safety Scheme of Work: Year 1 - 6

This scheme of work is made up by providing links to other free resources available on the internet. These include Google Be Internet Awesome and Digital Literacy curriculum, SWGfL, ThinkUKnow. IMPORTANT: I am in no way trying to pass these off as my own work, merely putting links to them all in one place and creating a SoW out of them with progression through year groups and learning objectives. I intend to put together a complete Scheme of Work, including E-safety, Digital Literacy and Coding, created from other free resources in the next few months. I wish to thank the creators of these resources and I am glad I am able to present them for your use. Jody Carter @codeyjody
