Keeping Your Child Safe Online
It is important to have regular conversations with your child about staying safe online and to encourage them to speak to you if they come across anything worrying.
The resources below provide guidance for parents and carers to keep children safe online. They will, amongst other things, support you to talk to your child about a range of online safety issues, set up home filtering in a child-friendly way and set up age-appropriate parental controls on digital devices.
Report an incident to school
If you are worried about an incident which has occurred involving your son/daughter or another learner from our school and would like to get in touch for advice and support, please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) at email@example.com
The Click CEOP button (pictured below) is an asset of the National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command. The CEOP Command works to protect children from the harm of sexual abuse and exploitation both online and offline.
The button has been developed to offer children, young people, parents/carers and professionals working with these groups with a simple and convenient mechanism for gaining access to trusted online safety advice, help and support. It also provides access to an online mechanism for reporting known or suspected child sexual exploitation or child sexual abuse directly to CEOP. This is offered as a convenient and potentially less intimidating method of reporting these sensitive types of crime, alternative to face-to-face and telephone reporting to local police forces.
The CEOP Safety Centre
The Click CEOP button provides a gateway to the CEOP Safety Centre, an area of the CEOP website offering:
- Advice on a range of online safety issues, such as hacking and cyberbullying;
- Signposting to NCA-CEOP partners offering help and support on issues outside of CEOP’s remit, such as ChildLine and BeatBullying;
- Reporting of suspected or known child sex offender activity directly to CEOP for investigation.
