Online Safety - For Children
The Internet can be an exciting place to learn, communicate and have fun.
You could be:
- researching a topic
- watching videos on YouTube
- playing a game on a laptop, tablet or games console
- messaging friends or family and sharing photos on a phone
At Crown Lane, we are here to support you to stay safe online.
Here are some links and resources to help you get started!
Unsure about something online?
You may have seen, received or have been asked to send a picture or a message that doesn't feel right. If it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. Remember, it is not your fault.
If there is no one to tell, or you are still concerned, click here to tell our Crown Lane Online Safety Mascot and let the school know. An adult at school will call you at home the next day.
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.
