Safeguarding

We would like to invite you to read important e-safety and child sexual exploitation information, advice and guidance. The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre provide a wealth of information on the benefits and risks of the internet. There is a great deal of practical advice and guidance on how you and your family can enjoy the benefits, whilst minimising the risks, of this widely used technology.

 

As your child grows and becomes more independent, it is only natural that they take this independence online. In our teenage years we explore, try new things and sometimes push boundaries and take risks, this is an essential part of growing up.

 

With all of the potential that the online world and new technology offers, young people now have access to huge opportunities. They use technology to express themselves, explore, and be creative; it has changed the way they communicate.

 

The internet has changed all of our lives, and your child has grown up during this change. Many of the things that confuse, baffle or even scare us, are part of the everyday for them. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much.

 

The website covers topics such as, talking to your child about the technologies they use and the things they might see, such as pornography. There are interviews from leading experts such as, Professor Tanya Byron, Dr Linda Papadopoulos and Reg Bailey, as well as key industry players from Facebook, Club Penguin and Moshi Monsters, this online guide aims to equip you with the tools to have those tricky conversations with your children and keep your family safe online.
