Online Safety

It is becoming increasingly important to keep up to date with online safety information.  We want to ensure that pupils understand how to be safe when they are surfing the internet and using social media.

It is vital that pupils understand the dangers that they could face when they are online and how to protect themselves from them. Our aim is to provide our pupils and parents with the tools needed to be able to recognise the potential dangers online. 

If you would like to discuss the content of the online safety section of our website, then please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Murphy, or by calling main reception.

Below are resources that parents and carers can look at to ensure that children are safer online, each header is a link to the related website. These resources highlight some of the latest app and site that children use, and have helpful information about privacy and safety settings. Remember, it is difficult to ensure that children are kept safe online, if those responsible for their safety don’t understand the potential risks.

If you have concerns about online grooming or exploitation, report to CEOP immediately.

Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP)

The CEOP website allows you to make reports about anything concerning that is internet based. This could be anything such as offensive material, online abuse or any concerns about a child.

Any reports made to CEOP are treated with high importance by specialists trained how to offer help and advice to parents and children. They may also pass on important information to the police or the school agencies if this is a necessary step. 

CEOP also has its own channel on YouTube where there are educational films and resources that can be used by parents in supporting their child’s education. 

Similarly, there are a range of links on this website which can take you to other websites such as the NSPCC and BeatBullying websites.
