A key part of preparing children and young people for the rigours of the modern world is how to stay safe online. Online safety is embedded in all aspects of life at Bredon, with regular education delivered through our PSHCE programme, lectures, assemblies and tutor times.
Parents are a crucial partner in keeping children safe online and we liaise with parents on a constant basis with regards to embedding safe online practice into the home, as well as at school.
Parents receive a safeguarding and pastoral newsletter from Mr Butt, Deputy Head Pastoral, at the end of each half term, updating and signposting them to ways in which to best support their children online.

Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP)
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.
