We take Online Safety (previously known as esafety) very seriously at Astley Park School. The aim of this page is to provide you with useful links and information to find out more and to help keep your children and young people safe online.
Here you'll find a collection of Parent Info and CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) articles, tips, expert advice and resources designed to help parents keep up with what their children are doing online.
If you're worried about online abuse or the way someone has been communicating online, let CEOP know. The CEOP button below will take you straight to the CEOP safety centre.
