    Safeguarding

    This page covers all aspects of your safety and gives you information in the form of documents, videos, websites and quizzes and who you can contact or talk to when you don't feel safe.

  • Child Expolitation

    This is the area most frightening to parents and children. The exploitation and abuse of children always provokes a strong reaction.

    The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre is the body set up to combat child exploitation and abuse, both in this country and abroad. Visit the CEOP site for more information.

    If you have any concerns whilst in College, please talk to your tutor or Learner Services.

    If you have concerns whilst online at home, click here to go to the CEOP Advice and Help Centre. They even have a toolbar that you can add to your Internet Explorer at home to help you report any issues that you may have.

    Remember to use our online safety rules (link in above section) to keep yourself "Safe and Secure".

    Please select the link below to find details of the recent West Yorkshire Police campaign against child sexual exploitation.

The resources here look at how they can be misused and include a social networking game and Horrible Histories Video.
