Online Safety

Staying safe online is a fundamental part of our curriculum at Pucklechurch, taught both through our Computing curriculum but also more widely. For example, in our PSHE (Personal, Social & Health Education), staying safe online is regularly discussed and across all our subjects, technology is used to enhance learning in a controlled and appropriate way.

The online world is continually changing for both parents and teachers. Understanding what your child is doing online is important but can be a daunting for many parents. Frequently, parents require advice about specific games or apps; you can click here to visit the National Online Safety website. It has really useful guides for parents, ranging from Zoom and Fortnite to social media and Fifa 2020. The guides are short and informative and really help you to develop a quick understanding of what dangers your children could face (and how you can avoid them).
