Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP)
The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command, or CEOP Command, is a command of the UK's National Crime Agency (NCA), and is tasked to work both nationally and internationally to bring online child sex offenders, including those involved in the production, distribution and viewing of child abuse material, to the UK courts. The centre was formed in April 2006 as the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, and was absorbed into the NCA on 7 October 2013 by the Crime and Courts Act 2013.

The Prevent Lead for the school is Nicola Jones, our Headteacher.

E-Safety Awareness:

In a letter to the Secretary of State December 2009 Dr. Tanya Byron wrote:

“New technologies are integral to the lives of all children, young people and their parents. They inspire children to be creative, communicate and learn. It is essential that children and young people tap into the potential of the digital world if they are to enjoy their childhood and succeed in life. In educating children and young people we should empower them to learn how to use digital technology responsibly, not simply block what they can access. We must give them the information and skills they need to be digitally literate and savvy users. This enables them to take advantage of the opportunities that new technologies can offer, as well as being able to deal with any risks that arise.”

While technology is empowering it has its risks. Everyone has a part to play in keeping safe online.
