The virtual world can be a dangerous place for children. It is important that our children are equipped to make the best use of new technology whilst knowing how to use it responsibly and safely.
Developing children's knowledge and skills in health and safety ( including on line safety ) was a key driver in the development of our New Whole School Curriculum and is taught as key skills in all year groups in all sessions. We recognise that what we teach and model in school only goes so far towards solving the problem. It is important that parents understand the risks of children using technology and feel able to talk to their children about being responsible online.
In order to support you as parents we share a whole variety of information advice and guidance on our Facebook page, Newsletters, Seesaw and the All Saints' App. We hope that this will be useful in helping you as parents support their children in becoming safe and responsible users of technology.
For further information, or any E-Safety questions you may have, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the our Online Safety Committee for a chat and some support.

The Click CEOP button
The Click CEOP button 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 NCA’s CEOP Command is here to help children and young people. We are here to help if you are a young person and you or your friend (up to age 18) has been forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity with anyone online, or in the real world. We also have advice and links to support for other online problems young people might face, such as cyberbullying and hacking. Visit our Safety Centre for advice and to report directly to CEOP, by clicking on the Click CEOP button.
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.
Reporting to CEOP
CEOP operates a 24/7 service for the receipt of reports.
Reports can be made to CEOP by a young person or on their behalf by a parent/carer or professional working with these groups. Children under 11 years of age are encouraged to tell an adult that they trust about what has happened and to ask for their help in reporting this either to CEOP or local police.
All reports to CEOP are treated as reports of crime and as such anonymous reports cannot be accepted.
