Online Safety Advice

At PCS we are continuing to give clear and consistent messages about the value and dangers of online activities. Educate yourselves and encourage your sons and daughters to empower themselves through knowledge of what to do if they come across bullying or inappropriate material.

We recommend Webwise as a very practical resource for parents and guardians who are concerned about their sons or daughter’s safety online. They have advice on bullying online, inappropriate images, easy to follow videos on how to take screenshots and facts about all of the most popular apps and social networks.
