Esafety at Hook Infant School

At Hook Infant School we take our responsibilities very seriously in ensuring your children are kept safe. This includes in both their everyday environments and also in the virtual, online world. As society is becoming ever more entwined in technological advances, our children have a greater access to the internet and at a much earlier age.

Even if your child does not have regular access to the internet, it is vital that we build in an understanding of some of the dangers and the knowledge of how to stay safe online. Most of our e-safety focus is in Year 1 & 2, but we do introduce the basic elements in Year R.

During the recent parent's e-safety survey, there were several responses asking for advice to use at home. In response to those requests, we hope to use this page as a library of resources for parents and carers to learn more about e-safety, as well as providing news and information on viruses and other computer security issues.

We will try to update the information on this page regularly, so keep checking back. Scroll down for important news and links to reporting incidents. Check our other eSafety pages here for links and downloadable resources.


The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) is a Command of the National Crime Agency.

Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can report it to CEOP by clicking the REPORT ABUSE button below.

The Government has released new guidance for parents on keeping their children safe online.
"Whilst there are huge benefits to being online in order to stay connected to family and friends during this period, the government recognises many parents may feel concerned about the activities and content their children are accessing. This guidance outlines resources to help keep children safe from different risks online and where to go to receive support and advice."
