At Warter School we help to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children. We are teaching children – at an age appropriate level – about how they can keep themselves safe whilst still enjoying the benefits of the internet. It is the parents / carers responsibility to ensure that children stay safe when they use digital technology out of school.

What CEOP do:
The NCA's CEOP Command (formerly the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account. We protect children from harm online and offline, directly through NCA led operations and in partnership with local and international agencies.
