Background to the Click CEOP button and CEOP Safety Centre


The Click CEOP button Ceop button


The Click CEOP button (pictured above) is an asset of the National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command. The CEOP Command works to protect children from the harm of sexual abuse and exploitation both online and offline. 
The button has been developed to offer children, young people, parents/carers and professionals working with these groups with a simple and convenient mechanism for gaining access to trusted online safety advice, help and support. It also provides access to an online mechanism for reporting known or suspected child sexual exploitation or child sexual abuse directly to CEOP. This is offered as a convenient and potentially less intimidating method of reporting these sensitive types of crime, alternative to face-to-face and telephone reporting to local police forces.


The CEOP Safety Centre


The Click CEOP button provides a gateway to the CEOP Safety Centre, an area of the CEOP website offering:

  • advice on a range of online safety issues, such as hacking and cyberbullying;
  • signposting to NCA-CEOP partners offering help and support on issues outside of CEOP’s remit, such as ChildLine and BeatBullying;
  • reporting of suspected or known child sex offender activity directly to CEOP for investigation.


Reporting to CEOP


CEOP operates a 24/7 service for the receipt of reports. 
Reports can be made to CEOP by a young person or on their behalf by a parent/carer or professional working with these groups. Children under 11 years of age are encouraged to tell an adult that they trust about what has happened and to ask for their help in reporting this either to CEOP or local police. 
All reports to CEOP are treated as reports of crime and as such anonymous reports cannot be accepted.

London Trip December 2017

On Wednesday 13th December this year, 16 students and 8 staff took a train to London. We walked two miles through London taking in the iconic sites along the river; the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, The London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Shard. We walked over Waterloo Bridge to Covent Garden and down Drury Lane and Museum Street to The British Museum where we saw the Mummies of Ancient Egypt. We had lunch at the museum and then we went by taxis via Buckingham Palace to the Apollo Victoria Theatre to see a performance of the musical Wicked. We then jumped into more taxis to go back to Kings Cross Station, where we managed to fit in seeing the Harry Potter Platform 9 and three quarters before catching the train back to Lincolnshire. It was a full and tiring yet incredibly worthwhile day in terms of broadening horizons,  having new experiences, learning new skills, being sociable, building resilience and having fun!

All the best

Btec Animal Care - Handling Day

 MillipedeHedgehogBearded Dragon

                                                                                                  

 On the 5th December, we had visitors of various reptile and small animal species. The animals included: a hedgehog, a millipede, a frog, tarantulas, a scorpion and a snake. An interesting thing I found out was that if you stroke a hedgehog, the spikes don’t prick you and it feels like a rough rug. Also the bearded dragon’s chin turns black when it starts to become angry. When I held the millipede, it tickled my hands and it wrapped its self around them.
