The symbol on the 'Report Abuse' button below, which looks a bit like an eye on legs, represents the Virtual Global Taskforce (VGT), a group of law enforcement agencies who work together to fight online abuse relating to children.
If you click on the button you will be reporting a problem directly to someone at CEOP (the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Agency) You are then likely to be contacted by a social worker or a police officer, to talk through your report in more detail. They need to do this to make sure you are safe.
It is also a good idea to talk to your parents about your report to CEOP, although if your report concerns a family member, CEOP will not make contact with them until an investigation has been completed.
If you do not want to make a report by pressing the button but are still worried about something online, then please talk to a member of Student Services Team at school, or to an adult you can trust.
Alternatively, click on the CONFIDE button on the login page of all the screens in school and report your concern electronically.

Our students receive regular input on E-Safety in assemblies, computing lessons and PDT (Personal Development Time) lessons. We always take part in Safer Internet Day, which takes place every February, and we offer a session for parents also on the evening of Safer Internet day.
We would advise parents and carers to read the E-Safety letters we will be sharing with you regularly (a link to all archive copies in the menu to the left of this page). In addition there are a number of useful resources and policy documents related to E-Safety in the links section on the left.
Here are some links to useful websites:
