Helpful Links and Resources to access during COVID 19 Remote Learning Period
Thank you all for your continued patience and support during this remote learning period. During this time of remote learning, the children will be accessing online material on a daily basis and so, it is now more than ever essential to monitor your child's internet access. Below are some links to websites that provide resources and helpful advice as to how to help your children remain safe online.
CEOP stands for Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command. CEOP is a organisation which helps keep thousands of children and young people safe from sexual abuse and grooming online every year.

CEOP are willing to give advice about how to keep your child safe online and their website allows you to make a report directly if something has happened to your child online which has made either yourself or your child feel unsafe, scared or worried.
