Developments in technology and online behaviour provide a wealth of opportunities but also new areas of risk to children and young vulnerable adults including; online abuse, sexual exploitation, exposure to explicit material, radicalisation, identity theft, grooming and cyber-bullying. It is therefore crucial that Longcause has a plan in place to empower our vulnerable children and young people to use technology safely and to safeguard them from harm whilst following the Education for a Connected World framework. We do this through regular Online Safety weeks, workshop days and through our LLfL curriculum that is tailored to our students. By doing this, the children at Longcause have access to advice, information, guidance and resources to raise their awareness about potential areas of risk and how to address them; keeping themselves safe online.
Further information or help for parents can be found in our 'curriculum areas' and in 'computing'.
CEOP ReportingThe CEOP reporting button allows you to report suspicious individuals or behaviour directly to law enforcement quickly and easily. The reports come directly to our intelligence centre and the team there are then in best place to analyse, assess and take appropriate action according to the perceived risk and threat to an individual child.

Whatever their age, we can help you to find out more about what they might be doing online and give you some simple, practical and easy advice on the steps you can take as a parent to keep them as safe as possible.
