The CEOP Safety Centre has clear information and advice on what can be reported to CEOP, the reporting process and what will happen if you do decide to make a report.

Advice for Keeping Safe Online
This information has been taken from the TEFAT Online Safety Guidance for staff, parents and carers – the full guidance is available: click here
Try to monitor your child’s online use and their internet access- maybe by being in a shared work space or area at home.
Remind your child to let you know if they see anything upsetting or inappropriate online so that you can support them.
Talk to your children about the advantages of being able to access the internet alongside the risks of ‘over sharing’, sharing private information and cyber bullying.

Please report online bullying to us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 01945 583690
