The internet is a wonderful resource, however, ensuring our children know how to use the internet safely is paramount. Alongside ongoing teaching in the classroom parents and children can make use of the following resources.
CEOP is the National Crime Agency’s ‘Child Exploitation and Online Protection’ service. CEOP works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account. CEOP protects children from harm online and offline, directly through National Crime Agency-led operations and in partnership with local and international agencies.
You can contact CEOP to report any inappropriate online activity. CEOP help children stay safe online. If someone has acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know- it may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable, or someone being insistent on meeting up- you can report it to CEOP by following this link: http://www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/
ChildLine is a private and confidential service for children and young people up to the age of nineteen. You can contact a ChildLine counsellor about anything - no problem is too big or too small.

The BBC have launched an online safety website for 9-12 year olds, Own It, to help them navigate life online. The site contains videos and content to equip children with the skills to make the most out of the online world without the danger of harm.
Tony Hall, BBC Director-General, told the Children’s Global Media Summit in Manchester: “It’s aimed at an age group we know are particularly affected by the day-to-day pressures and dilemmas of life online. And it offers them guidance on what they say they want help with.” “It’s called ‘Own it’, because it’s there to help them take control and be the boss of their online lives.”
