Online Safety

Our lives are now more connected than ever. The internet is an amazing resource, but it can be misused. 

CEOP is a law enforcement agency and is here to keep children and young people safe. If someone online has acted inappropriately towards you or someone you know, please use the CEOP button above to report it.

Technology is changing all the time and it's important to stay safe online.

We teach about online safety in lessons and advise students, parents and carers to:

  • Check security settings are private
  • Only communicate with people they know in ‘real life’
  • Agree how much time to spend online and when
  • Talk about websites and apps being used

Students, speak to a teacher in school if you're worried about something or contact our safeguarding team.
