During the coming weeks young people will be spending more time online than they may normally. This will be both for home study and entertainment. It is important that we continue to do all we can to keep them safe.
If you or your child have any concerns surrounding online safety then you can contact us as well as the services shown below:
Childline - for support
UK Safer Internet Centre - to report and remove harmful online content
CEOP - for advice on making a report about online abuse
