Online Safety

Children and young people spend a lot of time online – it can be a great way for them to socialise, explore and have fun. However, there are also potential risks that children face online, like cyberbullying or seeing inappropriate content.

Every year, we work with the pupils in school to help them understand the various dangers they could face. You don’t need to be an expert on the internet, but understanding what children do online and the risks they face will help you to keep your child safe online.

In this area, you can find resources about keeping children safe online. All of these resources have been taken from the CEOP website. You can also find some activities in the ‘Pupil Zone’ linked to e-safety for children to play.

Inappropriate Content

It is important to use parental filters on your home computer to avoid children being exposed to inappropriate content.

Thinkuknow is the education programme from NCA-CEOP, a UK organisation which protects children both online and offline.
