Resources for parents:


Use the CEOP report button (below)  if you ever feel that your child could be in danger or feeling threatened online and keep any evidence your have.


Due to the ongoing school closures in force across the UK, organisations such as CEOP and The UK Safer Internet Centre have been putting together resources to ensure that all of our pupils are safe online. Obviously children will be spending a greater amount of time online during this period of school closures, so please make sure you take extra care to ensure your child is safe.

The Internet Watch Foundation warns that, with schools being forced to shut, there is an increased risk of children being groomed and coerced online. Experts are bracing themselves for a spike in public reports of child sexual abuse on the internet as more and more people stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic.


PLEASE HELP US ENSURE THAT NONE OF OUR CHILDREN ARE PUT AT RISK; take a look at some of the websites, documents and activities below:
