Keeping your child safe online

At Hambrough, we have Hector Protector and his friends to help keep you and your friends safe online. We encourage all parents and children to visit the CEOP website as E-Safety is a high priority due to its many users.

The CEOP website (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) helps build a knowledge of how to stay safe online. This website has a lot of fun activities that provide children with vital information on staying safe online.



Through our curriculum each year children are taught a series of E-Safety lessons that build their knowledge of how to stay safe online. They sign an acceptable use policy each time they log onto a computer. Parents also sign the acceptable use agreement at the time of admission.

  • Pupils are responsible for appropriate behaviour on the schools’ computer network just as they are in the classroom or in the school playground.
  • Communications on the network are often public in nature.
  • General school rules and Behaviour policy apply and it is expected that users will comply with the guidelines of this policy.


  • All parents should be aware of the concerns and benefits of school internet use. Parents are therefore encouraged to look at government guidance available on the internet to help in the supervision of their children.
  • E-Safety Workshops for parents are regularly organised at the school.

  • A good resource book "Caught in the Web" - Barney says let's talk about keeping safe on the internet. (Part of the Barney and Echo Series) By Luke Davies
