Ormiston Denes online anonymous reporting form
At Ormiston Denes Academy we have created an in house reporting system our students can use. The system is anonymous so you can report any concerns about yourself or someone you are worried about. The system is monitored real time by our safeguarding team.
Our students can report any safeguarding concerns electronically at any time, whether during or outside of the school day. There is a link that can be used for reporting by pressing the yellow button at the top of the home page on the right hand side. Concerns can be reported directly to CEOP by also using the link button.
CEOP: Child Exploitation & Online Protection Centre
If you are feeling worried or threatened online by something that happens to you, you can report directly to CEOP. They are part of the national crime agency and read every report. They will work with the Police and help solve or deal with any problem.

Pokemon Go – A Parents’ Guide. Tips and advice on keeping children safe.
The government has launched a new online tool for schools across the country to give parents the best possible advice and tips on preparing their children for adult life. The new online service, called Parent Info, (http://parentinfo.org/
), will give parents the information they need to help them navigate the issues children can now face on everything from spotting the warning signs of self-harm, to having a healthy body image and managing money in a digital world. As well as giving them the confidence and support to speak to their children on such sensitive issues, it will also provide them with pathways for where they can go for more hands on support on specific issues. Schools can easily integrate the free Parent Info newsfeed in to their websites and host this advice by registering at www.parentinfo.org
will take you to the Anti-Bullying Alliance Organisation’s website. The ABA is a unique coalition of organisations and individuals who work together to stop bullying and create safer environments in which children and young people can live, grow, play and learn. ABA is hosted by the National Children’s Bureau.

Informative leaflet about sending/receiving nude pictures.
PSNI Newry & Mourne (Police Service of Northern Ireland) has recently shared a warning to parents about texting ‘codes’ that some teenagers use to disguise their phone or online messages. Referencing a list published by a US technology show, the post encourages parents to understand the language used on social media/chat sites, which we thought our parents may find useful.
