Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? Have you or someone you know been asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or is someone being insistent on meeting up? You can report it to The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP).

ICT in the 21st Century is seen as an essential resource to support learning and teaching, as well as playing an important role in the everyday lives of children, young people and adults. Consequently, we need to build in the use of these technologies in order to arm our young people with the skills to access life-long learning and employment.
Information and Communications Technology covers a wide range of resources including; web-based and mobile learning. It is also important to recognise the constant and fast paced evolution of ICT within our society as a whole.
Whilst exciting and beneficial both in and out of the context of education, much ICT, particularly web-based resources, are not consistently policed. All users need to be aware of the range of risks associated with the use of these Internet technologies.
At Ravensmead, we understand the responsibility to educate our pupils on eSafety issues; teaching them the appropriate behaviours and critical thinking skills to enable them to remain both safe and legal when using the internet and related technologies, in and beyond the context of the classroom.

You may feel that some of these are aimed at High School pupils, but parents please look at them and consider discussing the content in an age appropriate way. One of the recommendations is for parents to constantly monitor their child’s devices and of course this applies to all ages.
