The Thinkuknow website from CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection command) has recently undergone a redesign which makes reporting abuse and accessing online safety resources for children and young people, parents and school staff easier.
For school staff this means that it is straightforward to locate and download resources such as the new Play Like Share short animated films, and other curriculum materials, as well as to gain access to a range of guidance and advice, plus information on training. Ideally school staff will register with this site to receive newsletters and updates direct.
For parents and carers, information and advice is presented in a clear and helpful way.
For children and young people, the links are familiar, but the process for reporting via the red CEOP button is now presented in a very clear way. You may wish to explain this to your pupils in an online safety lesson, and some schools choose to embed or link to this button from their school websites.
For any colleagues who have previously attended CEOP Ambassador training there are new presentations downloadable to use for delivering the Thinkuknow Introduction session. If you are considering attending an Ambassador training session you will find these listed in the School workforce section.
It’s worth taking a look to ensure you are up to date.
