E-safety

At Thomas Buxton we take the safety of our children very seriously, both in the real world and online.  This page contains lots of information as well as some handy tips to help you stay safe online.

Leaflets for Parents

The best way to help keep our children safe online is for their parents and carers to have a good idea of the nature of the content to which they have access. The following leaflets give helpful advice on how to protect your children when they are online:

We recommend that you visit Better Internet for Kids for guidance for staying safe across a variety of devices.

CEOP Safety Centre

For Young People

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.

For Adults

CEOP is a command of the National Crime Agency and is dedicated to tackling the sexual abuse and exploitation of children and young people. CEOP helps children and young people under the age of 18 who have been forced or manipulated into taking part, or are being pressured to take part, in sexual activity of any kind. This can be both online and
offline.

The CEOP Safety Centre offers information and advice for children and young people, parents and carers and professionals. You can visit the CEOP Safety Centre and make a report directly to CEOP by clicking the Click CEOP button.

Online bullying or other online concerns should not be reported to CEOP and children and young people should be directed to speak to an adult they trust, and/or referred to Childline, if they would like to speak to someone about how they are feeling.

E-safety Posters

A key component of our e-safety policy is to encourage children to 'Think, Then Click'.  This ensures they consider the kind of material that they may be accessing and ensures they take responsibility for their own e-safety.
