At John Keble, our children learn about staying safe online through assemblies, workshops, the PHSE and computing curriculums.
Ensuring your child stays safe online at home is of extreme importance to us. We therefore, advise you to be vigilant and aware of what your child is doing when they go online and which sites they are visiting.

CEOP helps any child or young person under the age of 18 who is being pressured, forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity of any kind. This can be something that has taken place either online or in ‘the real world’, or both. 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. You can visit the CEOP Safety Centre and make a report directly to CEOP by clicking the Click CEOP button.
