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.

Latest News

Our nice new MPV delivered today.

We have taken deliver y of our first ever Pilgrim Minibus.  It looks rather smart and will expand our opportunities to transport our pupils for additional enrichment opportunites and D of E excursions etc.

Pilgrim Minibus

Celebrating Success

Following last week’s article about Duke of Edinburgh, We are pleased to share the news that DA and SB have been invited to Buckingham Palace as part of the Dof E celebrations in May.

On 22nd March staff and pupils at the Sleaford base walked a mile for Sports relief. They also held a cake sale at break and participated in a mile of pennies (needless to say it wasn’t quite a mile!!). Total raised came to £67.50. Many thanks to JD for organising this and to those staff who baked cakes to sell.

 The career’s fair held in Lincoln on Monday 19th March was a big success. The workshops on CV writing and interview techniques etc were particularly well received by our pupils.

Celebrating Success - D of E Update

On Wednesday 7th March we had the official ceremony that declared us an official centre for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Mick Hoare who is the East Midlands Operations Officer for Dof E came to the Sleaford base and met with some of the pupils who have embarked on bronze so far and then presented the framed certificate. We were pleased to have governors in attendance in this occasion too.

Celebrating Success - Visit to Bunkers Care Home

Just after half term, two of our year 11 pupils from Lincoln, ET and MH, visited the Bunkers Care Home as part of their Health and Social care course. The pupils sat with around 10 residents and completed craft activities with them. They achieved their objectives for the BTEC course but also were able to use the opportunity to grow their confidence in visiting new places and their communication skills in meeting new people. This is what therapeutic education looks like in practice! We received very positive feedback from the care home who would like to be able to host more of these visits. Many thanks to HS (RSO) for accompanying the girls and to NB for setting up the experience.

BLESMA Charity Workshop

The school has arranged for a visit from the charity BLESMA, the limbless veterans, to deliver free workshops from veterans to inspire and motivate pupils. 

The aim of the workshop is:

  • To inspire pupils with the BLESMA members stories.
  • Understand what it is to overcome adversity and promote how to be resilient.
  • Encourage healthy behaviours.
  • Improve confidence and self-esteem, and make individuals realise that we all go through tough times.
  • Improve interpersonal relationships and skills.
