Pixmore provides a comprehensive age appropriate curriculum for online safety which enables pupils to become informed, safe and responsible. Online safety is fully embedded within our whole curriculum with the Learning for Life and Computing curriculums playing a central role in supporting its delivery.
Our curriculum covers the following areas of online safety:
- Self image and identity
- Online relationships
- Online reputation
- Online bullying
- Managing online information
- Health, wellbeing and lifestyle
- Privacy and Security
- Copyright and ownership
The order in which pupils cover the curriculum areas is flexible enabling us to respond to the needs of the current pupils at any given time.
In addition to the core curriculum, Pixmore pupils also participate in:
- Social Media Kindness Day: 9.11.23
- Anti-bullying Week: 13.11.23-17.11.23
- Safer Internet Day: 06.02.24
Our digital leaders, along with our school online safety mascot, Cuddles, play an important role in promoting the importance of online safety.
At Pixmore, we expect parents/carers to take an active role in enhancing the online safety education we provide by also promoting esafe practises to help keep children safe.

One of the most important safeguarding tips we teach pupils at Pixmore is to share their worries and concerns no matter how small. We would like to extend this sentiment to parents/carers too. If you have any concerns about online safety and your child’s wellbeing and security which you need further support with, please contact your child’s class teacher, key worker, or the computing safeguarding lead Charlotte Pocock.
