The Shrubberies School

Online Safety for All

Our Teacher, Sara Whelan, is a CEOP Ambassador


The Ambassador course enables Sara to train others to deliver Thinkuknow’s education programme.

The CEOP Ambassador course is a 'train the trainer' course delivered by the CEOP Education Team.


The CEOP Ambassador  course means that Sara has had an in-depth look at: :

  • How children and young people use the internet and mobile technology
  • The nature of online offending against children and young people
  • How offenders use the online environment
  • Risk taking behaviour of young people online
  • Educational and organisational responses and policy in this area

Online Safety is all about making sure that your child’s use of the internet and mobile devices are positive experiences and that systems and settings guard your child’s safety.  That is what safeguarding is all about!   At the bottom of this page is a PDF attachment which provides you with access to our Parent E-Safety Leaflet.
