Welcome

Online Safety

The internet is essential in 21st century life for education, business and social interaction. As children move up through the school their  access to various  types of technology increases and it stands to reason that their exploration and curiosity increases too. The positives of the digital world overwhelmingly outweigh the negatives but children, schools and parents all need to be aware of  various online risks.

 

At Holbrook we are passionate about online safety and teach our children about how to stay safe online. We are also very keen to share information with parents and carers to help them to protect children at home. 

At Holbrook we follow these SMART rules to stay safe online:

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.

 

If you are experiencing online bullying or something else online has worried you please speak to an adult you trust, or you can talk to Childline at any time on 0800 1111 or at www.childline.org.uk.

There are many websites which offer support and advice for parents and carers around online safety:
