On this page, we hope to provide parents, carers and pupils with information to help understand cyberbullying, how to deal with it and hints and tips on how to use the internet safely.

The internet is not a scary place. If used in the correct manner and taking the necessary precautions, it can be a huge asset in your personal and school life.

Report it!

Online Resources

There are thousands of resources available online to help parents and students stay safe online. We've selected a few we think are of use below:

ThinkUKnow - ThinkUKnow is a website created by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, otherwise known as CEOP. It's specifically aimed at young people and provides information on how to stay safe online. It covers a variety of topics, dealing with the common ways young people interact with each others, including mobiles phones, gaming, social networking, chatting and blogs. You'll find the CEOP Report button at the bottom of this page.

NetSmartz - The Teens section of this site, in particular, gives a series a real life stories told by teenagers who have been victims of internet exploitation. It's a hard-hitting site but provides important e-safety messages.

Childnet Young People - The Childnet website helps students look at how they use communication technology and shows them how to be aware of the dangers that can arise from using them.

Bullying Online - Bullying Online is a website covering all aspects of bullying but has a section covering cyberbulling specifically. Lots of advice on how to stay safe on the internet, mobile phone bullying, dangerous and abusive websites.
