E-Safety for Adults

Welcome to our E-Safety page

 

At school we talk to the children about how to stay safe online; every year group teaches an e-safety unit of work during the academic year and special assemblies are also held to inform the children how to stay safe online.

 

The internet is a wonderful place for young people to explore, with great opportunities for learning and creativity, but just like the real world there are risks and dangers they should be aware of and which we should all act to protect them from.

 

Just a few simple steps can help keep them safe and give young people the awareness to know what to do if they feel uncomfortable about anything they encounter while on the internet. The links below provide more information about parental controls and how to stay safe online.

 

The most important thing that you can do is be aware of what your child/children are doing on-line.

CEOP Safety Button

 

CEOP is a command of the National Crime Agency and is dedicated to tackling the sexual abuse and exploitation of children and young people.

 

CEOP helps children and young people under the age of 18 who have been forced or manipulated into taking part, or are being pressured to take part, in sexual activity of any kind. This can be both online and offline. The CEOP Safety Centre offers information and advice for children and young people, parents and carers and professionals. You can visit the CEOP Safety Centre and make a report directly to CEOP by clicking the Click CEOP button.

 

Online bullying or other online concerns should not be reported to CEOP and children and young people should be directed to speak to an adult they trust, and/or referred to Childline, if they would like to speak to someone about how they are feeling.
