Online Safety

At PTM Academy we are keen to promote a love of digital learning.  This will allow the children to learn all of the skills required to safely navigate the digital world.  This includes learning about how to stay safe online, how to write and debug a program as well as understanding algorithms and digital literacy.  No longer is digital technology an addition to our daily lives, it has become fundamental to our communication and understanding of the world.

At PTM Academy we feel that educating parents and carers about Online Safety is hugely important.  As such we have subscribed to some digital magazines, which you can find in the section below.  These will aid you when tackling some of the issues that may arise in your children’s digital lives.

Please read our policy (in the policy section) that we have here at PTM.
