How to Report Online Safety Concerns:
If you are concerned about online safety issues regarding your child and would like to speak to someone at school, please speak to your child’s class teacher in the first instance.
If you don’t feel you can speak to your child’s class teacher, please contact the school office to speak to either Mr Curwen or Mrs Rowe (our safeguarding leads in school).
Adults and children can call the NSPCC helpline or contact ChildLine to get advice, anonymously if they wish.
CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection command) can be contacted where there is suspected online grooming/sexual abuse, but CEOP are unable to respond to reports about bullying, fake accounts or account hacking.
As parents/carers, you may wish to know more about keeping your child safe while using the internet.
