We take this very seriously and will be building up a page of resources.

Visit the CEOP’s Thinkuknow website to find find the latest information on the sites you like to visit, mobiles and new technology. Find out what’s good, what’s not and what you can do about it.  Most importantly, there’s also a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online. All the information here is brought to you by the team at the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre.

We are pleased to have signed up to Parent Info, a free service for schools run by CEOP and the Parent Zone, which brings together the most up-to-date expert content for parents on issues affecting people online.  Please see the online articles at the bottom of this page.
