|CEOP help keep children safe online.|
The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre is dedicated to eradicating the sexual abuse of children. That means they are part of UK policing and very much about tracking and bringing offenders to account either directly or in partnership with local and international forces.
By clicking on the 'CEOP' button you can make an official report if you feel someone has acted inappropriately towards you online or a young person that you know. It may be sexual chat or being asked to do something you feel uncomfortable about or someone insistent on meeting up. Visit the website for more information, advice and support.

At Littletown all children in KS1 and KS2 together with the staff sign an I.C.T. 'Acceptable Use Policy' to help keep them safe. Click on the links below to view our policies.

Ollee is a digital friend for children aged 8-11 – created by Parent Zone and funded by BBC Children in Need’s A Million & Me initiative.
It helps them explore feelings around school, family, friends and the world – and share advice with a parent or trusted adult. Children can tell Ollee how they’re feeling and it will give them ideas about what to do. If they’re not sure, Ollee will help them figure it out.
Together, parents and children can share Ollee’s advice and talk about feelings together through connected accounts. Click here or on the Ollee logo to download the app or visit the site via your web browser
