What type of issues can be reported to CEOP?

  • I am worried a child is being groomed online
  • A child has shared or requested a nude picture online and is now being threatened
  • A child is meeting up with someone they met online
  • A child has been asked to live-stream by people they do not know
  • I’ve noticed changes in a child’s behaviour which I think may be due to someone they met online
  • A child has learning difficulties and I am worried about the people they are talking to online
  • I am worried that a child’s abusive father/mother is trying to contact them online

What happens when a report is made?

All reports are assessed and responded to by CEOP’s specialist Child Protection Advisors. If a police response is necessary, it will be conducted in partnership with your local police force. CEOP’s Child Protection team are specialist workers who have helped thousands of children.

If parents, carers or students require support with online issues or guidance making a report to CEOP please contact the school.
