Online Safety

Online safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. We also want to help our parents, carers and children improve their own understanding of online safety issues so they can learn to use the Internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.

The information below is intended to support parents, carers, pupils and staff.

CEOP Reporting

CEOP is a command of the National Crime Agency and is dedicated to tackling the sexual abuse and exploitation of children and young people. CEOP helps children and young people under the age of 18 who have been forced or manipulated into taking part, or are being pressured to take part, in sexual activity of any kind. This can be both online and offline. The CEOP Safety Centre offers information and advice for children and young people, parents and carers and professionals. You can visit the CEOP Safety Centre and make a report directly to CEOP by clicking the Click CEOP button. Online bullying or other online concerns should not be reported to CEOP and children and young people should be directed to speak to an adult they trust, and/or referred to Childline, if they would like to speak to someone about how they are feeling.
