CEOP is the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre; they have developed a set of resources for Key Stage 1 called Hectors World, Cyber Café for Key Stage 2 and Think u Know for 11-16 year olds. CEOP website gives you the latest information on the sites children like to visit, as well as mobile phones and new technology. It will also show you where to find help and advice if you have a safeguarding issue.
Knowsley City Learning Centres have 3 trained CEOP Ambassadors and to date have raised awareness in approximately 1753 Knowsley citizens to help reduce risk-taking behaviour whilst online or using mobile technology. Amongst those are more than 90 wider DCFS colleagues and over 800 pupils as well as their parents or carers who have benefited from direct delivery of CEOP Think U Know sessions from the CLC team in collaboration with Knowsley Safeguarding Children Board and Knowsley eSafety Working Group. For more information on arranging a CEOP presentation through the CLCs, please contact Danielle Murphy (our Learning Co-ordinator based at Whiston CLC) 0151 477 8040.

Knowsley CLC’s e -Safety programme is an integral part of every activity both within the centres and outside. Our Learning Co-ordinators deliver presentations and activities, developed in conjunction with CEOP materials, to provide young people with the necessary skills to stay safe online and use the web with a deeper knowledge and under standing of the potential risks.
Report Abuse Button
CEOP would actively like to encourage all organisations that have an online presence where children and young people congregate to adopt the CEOP ‘ Report Abuse’ mechanism. The Report Abuse button has already been integrated into the most popular instant messaging software like MSN and a wide range of social networking websites. Further information is available on the CEOP website here. You can also download a customised version of popular web browsers to promote online safety for families. See the Click, Clever, Safe article on the Raising Awareness page.
